Transgender: Intersectional/International is a conference that aims to explore the diversity of transgender experience throughout the world.


Our conference will go beyond mainstream representations to look at the kinds of structural inequalities often ignored, including in relation to socio-economic opportunities, race and ethnicity, dis/ability and neurodiversity, and nationality.


Speakers from all over the world will gather, from Uganda to Brazil, and from India to South Africa, to share stories and research, and reveal what it is to be transgender in our twenty-first century world.
