Please Donate to Our Indiegogo Scholarship Fund!

The Transcending Boundaries Conference (TBC) provides education, community and safe space for those often ignored in the LGBT community, such as bisexual, pansexual, transgender, genderqueer, intersex, asexual, polyamorous, and kinky persons. TBC helps strengthen and connect these communities "outside the lines" by promoting inclusiveness and providing vital safe space for some of the queer community's most marginalized people.

In order to help those with the greatest need attend, TBC keeps its registration prices low, as well as providing scholarships and reduced rates. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO OFFER THESE LOW RATES AND SCHOLARSHIPS WITHOUT OUTSIDE SUPPORT. Since our founding in 2001, donations and sponsorships have enabled low-income families, persons with disabilities, youth, and homeless folks to attend, but the demand is constant. We must once again ask for support to help fund scholarships, to allow those who need TBC the most to experience the joy of simply Not Being Alone.

TBC hopes to raise $2,000 through this campaign, which will fund full and partial scholarships to the 2015 conference, taking place November 20-22 at the Springfield Sheraton. A donation of $5 or more makes you an official scholarship sponsor and your name will be listed in our conference guide Donate a little more and choose one of our fun perks!

Please DONATE NOW...or if you can't donate please share the link for the fundraising campaign with your friends.

Announcing our 2015 Keynote Speaker: Bisexual Activist Faith Cheltenham

 The next Transcending Boundaries Conference will be held November 20, 21 and 22, 2015 in Springfield, Massachusetts at the Springfield Sheraton.  For those of us who joined us in 2011 and 2012, the Springfield Sheraton was the host hotel. Our keynote speaker will be bisexual activist, Faith Cheltenham.

Faith has been a major player in LGBT activism in the US for the past 15 years. Earlier this year she made history, being the first leader of a bisexual non-profit to have a private meeting with the president and witness an executive order signing. In 2013 she co-organized the first bisexual community issues roundtable at the White House. 
 
In addition to her political activism, Faith has appeared on several major news outlets and in PSAs for the American Institute of Bisexuality.  Faith is a published author, writing for for both LGBT and mainstream media. An accomplished stand-up comic, Faith brought humor and activism together in 2009 by organizing the first “Zombie Pirates For Healthcare Reform” protest.

Currently she serves as president of BiNet USA, the original founders of the Transcending Boundaries Conference. We couldn’t be happier to be connecting with our BiNet roots by working with Faith this year. If you want to learn more about this amazing intersectional activist and the work she is doing here are some places to start:
 

The chairpersons for TBC 2015 will be Lorelei Erisis and Sara Brosnan, both members of the Transcending Boundaries Incorporated board.
