The Philadelphia Trans Wellness Conference is Looking for Trans-Led Workshops, Your Experiences, Your Voice in 2022By: Chris Gilmore/TRT Reporter—PHILADELPHIA—The Mazzoni Center announced in mid-February their decision “to pivot the 2022 edition of its Philadelphia Trans Wellness Conference, PTWC, to a virtual format due to concerns over the lingering pandemic.” In lieu of the decision, the Conference coordinators are centering the workshops on trans people’s experiences.The PTWC is not only an event for trans and nonbinary people but also a favorite of many people who love and have family members who are trans.“I love going there with my transgender wife; supporting her and her journey is supporting us,” said Sam Roland, a junior Villanova University student who attends each year whether in person or virtually. “I support the work it does because it matters to so many of our friends, family, to me, and specifically to my wife, who is trans, black, beautiful, and proud.” Call for trans-led workshopsSinead Murano, PTWC’s Logistics Coordinator; Photo: Mazzoni CenterIt is the conference’s aim to center the event on trans people’s lives from the perspective of trans experiences, lived or learned and acquired.
