5TH EUROPEAN TRANSGENDER COUNCIL

 

TRANS*: SAFE AND EQUAL!

 

Dear members, friends and allies,

 

We are half a year before the 5th European Transgender Council Trans*: Safe and Equal! that will take place in Budapest on 1 – 4 May 2014. You are invited to join this festive occasion of more than 200 trans activists coming together from allover Europe and beyond. A packed conference program will offer you a range of panels, workshops, keynote speeches and opportunities to meet, exchange, learn and network.

Trans*: Safe and Equal!stands for a growing and confident trans community but also makes clear that the right to life and dignity need to be realized first for it to prosper. Together we want to explore better ways on how to protect trans people from violence and advance equality for all.

We will gather in the Rubin Hotel on the Buda side of Budapest. The great team of volunteers of Transvanilla will be waiting to make your stay as good as possible.

On Thursday evening there will be a meet & greet and from Friday the conference will burst loose. On Saturday afternoon traditionally the TGEU General Assembly takes place.

Next month we will issue calls for workshop holders and scholarships. In February, registration will open. Stay tuned for a reduced early-bird option and check regularly back for news on the Council website:http://tgeu.org/council2014.

The Transgender Europe Steering Committee and TransVanilla are looking forward to welcoming you soon in Budapest!
