2020 TransPride Pittsburgh Health and Wellness Conference

October 8, 2020 to October 10, 2020

It is well established that LGBTQ+ people come from all walks of life, all races and ethnicities, all ages, all socio-economic status, and from all parts of the United States, making up a significant portion of the population. It is also established that transgender and non-binary individuals, especially those who are Black, Indigenous, or People of Color, experience tremendous discrimination and inequality in healthcare in addition to many other disparities.

The 2020 TransPride Pittsburgh Health and Wellness Conference seeks to address these issues by centering lived experience and building bridges between the trans/non-binary community and professional healthcare institutions to share perspectives, experiences, and educate one another. When the community and institutions communicate and collaborate new perspectives and ideas are forged. The needs of LGBTQ+ people should always be considered in public health efforts to improve the overall health of all people and eliminate health disparities.

The vision that we offer is that all humans are part of a diverse spectrum of biological characteristics, sexualities, and gender identities and that sexual and gender equity and racial equity are inexorably linked. We should be able to care for our transgender, non-binary, and intersex patients with as much dignity, respect, and clinical competency as we do for our cisgender patients. We do this though education and dialog via a lens of anti-racism and narrative humility “that acknowledges that our patients' stories are not objects that we can comprehend or master, but rather, dynamic entities that we can approach and engage with, while simultaneously remaining open to their ambiguity and contradiction and engaging in constant self-evaluation and self-critique.” Further we believe that comprehensive institutional cultural competency is essential in order to treat all of our patients exactly as they wish to be treated.

Our community and other healthcare professionals and speakers will focus on medical and behavioral health care needs, best practices, and cultural competencies for working with transgender, non-binary, and intersex persons and their families.

Target Audience

Mental health providers, medical providers, community providers, members of the transgender, non-binary and intersex communities, youth, families, and allies.

Learning Objectives

At the completion of this program, participants should be able to:

  1. Describe skill and increased cultural competency for providing mental and medical health services to transgender, non-binary, and intersex individuals.
  2. Discuss the lived experience and societal challenges facing transgender, non-binary and intersex individuals and how best to help.
  3. Recognize new perspectives on what it means to be human in the context of sexual, gender, and racial equity that is inclusive and respectful of transgender, non-binary and intersex status and identity.
