Conferences and retreats can provide great opportunities for fostering connections, sharing information, developing leadership and advocacy skills, furthering your knowledge of self and developing lasting relationships with others.
Below is a list of transgender and trans-inclusive LGBT conferences/retreats* in 2013 that offer workshops and information for transmen, their friends, families, providers, and and/or allies. Some of the conferences may have already come and gone, but I wanted to include them here so you can prepare for next year if something piques your interest.
If you know of any conferences not listed here (especially those in rural US areas and those outside of the US), please leave a comment below so we can add them to our list. I’ll also update this post periodically as dates are announced for additional conferences.

Interested in Androgel but can’t afford it? Here’s a resource to consider. The Women’s International Pharmacy (WIP) is an online pharmacy that describes itself as providing “Custom Compounded Bioidentical Hormone Compounds for Men and Women”. This pharmacy was recommended to me by a doctor while I was seeking Androgel. I was informed that WIP carries its own testosterone cream compound that is similar to Androgel — but can be more affordable out-of-pocket.
Given the recent Tip Series on Bathrooms, I wanted to put a plug in here for a website that I think has such a great concept. This is, of course, the Safe2Pee project. Like TfTM, Safe2Pee is a project run by and for trans people. And, like TfTM, they’re thinking about public restrooms.
