PFP Family Matters Conference 2017

Events. At University Of The Sciences , 600 South 43rd Street, Philadelphia, PA. United states.

Saturday October 7 2017, 9:00am


Save the date for PFP's annual conference for LGBTQ parents, prospective parents, grandparents and our kids of all ages. We'll be hosting this year's conference, our 8th annual, again on the beautiful campus of the University of the Sciences in West Philly (43rd and Woodland Ave.).

The day will be from 9am-3pm (one hour shorter by request) and feature keynote speaker and PFP parent Heath Fogg Davis and a talk entitled ""Parenting Through the Bureaucracy of Gender".

Heath is the author of Beyond Trans: Does Gender Matter? (NYU Press), a book that offers practical guidance to individuals and organizations on how to develop trans-inclusive policies that are institutionally smart. He is a professor at Temple University, where he teaches and conducts research on antidiscrimination law and policy. He also consults with businesses, schools, healthcare providers, and non-profits on trans-inclusion. Heath and his wife and kid (with another on the way) live in Philadelphia and are active members of the PFP New and Expectant Parent Group.
