Old First Is a Community Partner for the Trans-Health Conference

The Philadelphia Trans-Health Conference is a program of the Mazzoni Center, now in its 10th year, designed to support transgendered individuals, family, allies and friends. Most of its programming occurs at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, but the conference also hold different programs at various other sites.

The programming for the Trans-Health Conference is all planned and lead by volunteers and made possible through collaborations with a variety of community partners.

Old First is hosting many community members overnights June 1 -4 for the conference. There will be people staying in both the CE building and in the Social Hall. One of our guests will be UCC pastor Rev. Malcolm Himschoot. Malcolm was featured in a film, “Call Me Malcolm” about his struggles with faith, love and gender identity. The UCC helped to produce this film.

Old First will also host a picnic for folks of color at the conference and a caucuses for TransFaith. Both will serve as opportunities for networking and support, as participants enter into the larger community and intensity of the Philadelphia Trans-Health Conference.

In addition, Old First will have an information table at the conference June 2-4th. If you would like to help us staff that table, Mindy in the church office is scheduling volunteers.

A record number of community members are expected to attend the conference this year, which is focusing on building creative community partnerships, locally, nationally, and globally.

Happy 10th Anniversary Philadelphia Trans-Health Conference. Old First is honored to serve as a community partner!
