The Transgender: Intersectional/International conference aims to bring together scholars, artists, professionals, and activists to discuss issues related to transgender and non-binary experience, with a focus on social policy, health and wellbeing, law, the arts, digital humanities, and media. Fundraising has enabled payment of travel and accomodation costs for many speakers, especially from the Global South, to create a unique forum for transnational dialogues. The conference was conceived by Gina Maya Roberts at University of Edinburgh, and has been developed with an organising committee including Matthew Waites (Co-Convenor of Glasgow Human Rights Network/Sociology), Kumud Rana (Sociology) and Sylvia Morgan (Disability Service) at the University of Glasgow. Full details including a programme of speakers and registration information are available on the conference website.
