A BIT ABOUT US
The History of Gender Conference NYC
Gender Conference NYC has its roots in Gender Conference East, which began in 2014 in Baltimore, Maryland. The seed was planted in 2008 when moms in both Maryland and New York were eager for support and community. They found each other, and with the help of PFLAG Columbia-Howard County, PFLAG NYC, The Ackerman Institute's Gender & Family Project and Gender Spectrum, Gender Conference East was born. After a move to Newark in 2016, GCE continued to grow. By 2018, the increasing number of families in need resulted in the founders of GCE creating events in two locations and Gender Conference NYC was born. We are forever grateful to PFLAG Howard County and Gender Spectrum for their efforts and guidance.
