Every October, transgender and gender nonconforming folks are joined by friends, family, and allies for TIES. At the 2017 TIES conference, we welcomed more than 250 individuals identifying as trans or gender nonconforming who participated in day’s programs alongside over 100 allies.

The most important aspect of the Transgender Information and Empowerment Summit (TIES) is community. To us, community means trust, solidarity, and a shared respect for people who are transgender and gender diverse. The summit is an opportunity to build that community – to learn from and with each other in an intentional and empowering space. TIES offers information that is designed to meet the interests and needs of transgender individuals, partners, parents, youth, and allies to strengthen the transgender community across Virginia!
