Countdown to SCC 2014, Sept. 3 -7
**Registration is open**
Vendors, authors, entertainers and leaders from the entire spectrum of the transgender community will be in Atlanta to create a 4-day symposium full of learning, networking and fun just for you! From Wednesday through Saturday night, this year’s conference is packed with seminars, on-site activities as well as several planned trips away from the hotel that you are sure to enjoy. There is something for everyone at SCC.
As always, the seminar schedule reflects Southern Comfort’s commitment to serve the diverse needs of our community. The topics include basic information for the newbie, the newly-out, as well as the transitioned. They include detailed legal and medical presentations; and informative sessions on family, relationships, sexuality, and tips on makeup, presenting, and many more topics.
Entertainment? Provocative speakers? Of course! This is a top-shelf event! There are activities for children, teens, and adults: Lunches, dinners and evenings will be highlighted with incredible music and engaging speakers from the transgender community. Be sure to check out the list of shopping, fine dining, theatre, night-clubbing and dancing both in the hotel as well as at outside locations. You are in for a treat!
Conference Registration is separate from your hotel registration and charges. SCC packs in lots of seminars, lunches and dinners for a modest price. Beyond basic convention packages, you also have the opportunity to participate in optional activities (these sell out fast!). Conference Registration begins in April. Once you have registered for the conference, be sure to make your hotel reservations. The hotel sold out last year and we expect to sell out even earlier this year, so make your reservations online now.
Southern Comfort offers a scholarship program to individuals and families who, otherwise, might not be able to attend. Information on the scholarship can be found on our scholarship page.
We also have a Big Brother/Big Sister program for those who might be needing a little extra support for any reason.
If you are new to SCC, remember to look at our First Timers Jump start Guide.
In 2014, we are offering our first ever SCC family day-conference, which comprises a full day of educational programming sessions for children, teens and adults in their own space. The SCC Family Conference is a 1 day, conference separate from SCC, and registration is a separate application. It is the first major transgender family conference held in the southern U.S.
