For Presenters of Alternative Sexuality Topics


We are thrilled to announce that the Transcending Boundaries Conference for 2010 is accepting proposals for presentations! This year's theme is "Intersections." In keeping with the theme, our emphasis will be on programming that appeals to the different demographic groups present at our conference; presentations that have something for everyone in attendance. We hope to look at the intersections of our identities and communities- bisexual, pansexual, transgender, genderqueer, intersex, kink, polyamorous and others- especially how we can learn from one another and work together to strengthen our individual communities, as well as our larger shared
community and goals.

Transcending Boundaries, Inc. began in 2001 as an organization and conference for those who blur the lines of sex, gender, and sexual orientation. We are seeking presenters and program participants. This year's conference will include a variety of programming formats ranging from traditional informational lectures to panels to workshops to performances and everything in between. Whether you're an experienced presenter or interested in leading a group for the first
time, we'd love to consider your proposal.

All time slots for presentations will be 1 hour and 15 minutes. The Transcending Boundaries Conference 2010 will take place November 19-21, 2010 in Worcester, MA. The deadline for submission is August 15, 2010.

We are especially interested in presentations that address one of (or intersect) the following themes:
* Issues related to those who blur the lines of sex, gender, sexual and relationship orientations, including the Bisexual, Pansexual, Transgender, Genderqueer, Intersex, Kinky/BDSM, Polyamory and other allied communities. (If your community is not listed here
but you think should it be, this is the perfect opportunity to educate the larger community through a program proposal!) 101 and Intro level topics are specifically encouraged.
* Activism
* Relationships, Families and Parenting
* Spirituality and Religion
* Interactions with Professionals and Health Care Issues
* Writing/Creative arts
* Identity and Community

The deadline for submitting proposals is August 15, 2010, but please don’t wait until the last minute! If you have an idea for a presentation, please send it to us well in advance to assist us in getting a head start on creating an exciting and compelling conference program.
