IFGE Capital Conference On Hiatus
It's one of my fave conferences because in addition to being open to the general public and our allies, it has informative seminars, I enjoyed interacting with people from across the trans community at the event, and I loved browsing the vendor area and picking up whatever Tapestry magazines or trans themed books were missing from my collection.
This year's conference as I noted in the opening paragraph would have been the 25th edition of it and was supposed to kick off today and run through April 17. But with IFGE in the midst of reorganizing itself as a (c)4 organization, it decided to postpone the conference and all other IFGE programming, including the presentation of the IFGE Trinity Awards until 2012.
We hope and pray that when you're done with the reorganization of IFGE, it comes out on the other side of it being a leaner, meaner and muscular organization poised to ably serve our next generation of transpeople and our allies.
May IFGE be around for its centennial year and beyond, and see you at the 2012 event.
