Wednesday, February 27, 2019 - 12:30am to Wednesday, March 6, 2019 - 11:00pm

Trans Day of Visibility is an annual holiday celebrating trans, gender non-conforming, and non-binary folks. This year, we're celebrating by organizing a mini-conference that will feature Penn student research about trans issues. Find more information & submit a proposal for your research here: 

We invite students to submit a brief summary or description of their research (an abstract will fulfill this requirement, but more informal summaries are also welcome). Students are welcome to apply to be panelists for this conference, or to submit a poster summarizing their research to be put on display on the day of the conference. 

The conference will be held April 2nd, 2019. Location is TBD, and times depend on the availabilities of panelists, though the conference will be held in the afternoon/evening of the 2nd. 

Priority will be given to folks who identify as trans, gender non-conforming, non-binary, people of color, queer/LGBTQ, disabled folks, immigrants, undocumented folks, and folks with other marginalized identities. 

Any questions or comments may be directed to Jax Lastinger, M.S.Ed. Candidate at GSE ( or James Joshua Coleman, PhD Candidate at GSE (
