WORKSHOP SPOTLIGHT: Community Workshop: Foundational Principles in the Development of Intimate Relationships for TGNCNB folks | 10-11:15 AM for Ages 18+

Forming intimate relationships can be both exciting and scary at the same time. Often, we don't know where to start or how to approach others about sex and intimacy. Join Gina Pellicci (she/her) and Evelyn Parker (they/she) from Inner Lakes Therapy as they discuss important principles in developing intimate relationships for the TGNCNB community. This workshop includes describing the principles and gives tips on how to apply them. Participants will have time to share their thoughts on each principle with the group. Due to the nature of this workshop, it will be intended for folks who are 18 and older.

Come join us for The Hudson Valley TransForum, the largest regional conference providing resources for the Transgender, Gender Non-Conforming, and Non-Binary community, service providers, and allies!
