Genderevolution is Utah's only gender conference and was created by TransAction, a trans-led, trans-positive program of the Utah Pride Center.
Genderevoution is open to everyone, trans, nonbinary, agender, bigender, genderqueer, questioning and is recommended to anyone working with the public, curious about gender and anyone else who wants to learn the social construct that is gender and how it affects us in every day life.
We encourage teachers, health and medical professionals, social workers, doctors, lawyers, law enforcement, community educators, activists and everyone to attend to better understand gender and to better understand each other.
Genderevolution is proud to continue educating the masses and engaging our community in a virtual space for the first time since this awesome conference began.
We are also expanding our one day event to two days, to better accommodate folx schedules and give the ability to see and attend more workshops than ever before!
Cindy Wood's (she/her/hers/Herself/Miss) submission of “We Will Not Be Silent” was ultimately chosen by our committee out of all theme submissions as the winner for this year’s Genderevolution Conference.
Cindy shares with us her inspiration behind the winning theme for this years Genderevolution conference. "We Will Not Be Silent"
Everyone's voice matters because every voice can combine and find strength in numbers. It's about finding strength and sparking change as a group and in the community for the better.
Everyone's opinion matters. Has taken a long time to develop a voice and now I have it, I am not going to be silent. The only way to find your voice is to use it.
It's about learning to speak up, if you don't, how is the world supposed to know you exist. If something's wrong, speak up! Which also sets a good example for others to do the same.
It's about being courageous. Making a difference. Doing better.
It's about not allowing oneself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of you. Only you define yourself. Even though silence is not a sign of weakness, life is too short to leave important words unsaid. Always remember your voice matters.
To sum up, I'll leave you with this quote:
"Hope Will Never Be Silent".
-- Harvey Milk
Thank you, Cindy!
