Virginia TIES (Transgender Information & Empowerment Summit) is an annual conference in the fall that serves the needs and interests of transgender, non-binary, and gender nonconforming Virginians of all ages as well as their friends, family members, partners, and allies. More than anything else this means building connections and strengthening our communities.
For the first time ever, TIES 2020 took place over multiple days and occurred completely virtually. In recent years, TIES has been particularly focused on building connection in harrowing times, uplifting the racial justice work happening in the trans and non-binary community, and making TIES more accessible.
We are already looking forward to the 8th annual Transgender Information & Empowerment Summit (TIES), which will take place in Fall 2021! Check out our TIES 2021 page for more information.
