Please distribute widely!

The 3rd Annual Trans-Forming Feminism Conference is currently
in its planning stages. This one-day conference is to be held
at the State University of New York at New Paltz (SUNY New
Paltz) on April 22, 2006.

We are looking to create a conference that will explore the
issues connecting and dividing the transgender and feminist
communities. We want to address the fears, myths, and
misunderstandings that often keep these movements from
building coalitions together as well as the bridges that
stand firm in connecting these movements. We want to hear
lots of different voices, for no one voice speaks for

We are looking for new, innovative, dynamic, refreshing, and
honest proposals for workshops, papers, panels, and
performance pieces. We are especially interested in receiving
proposals that further explore the gender-queer community,
multi and pansexual communities, the exploitation of race,
class, ableism and the queer and feminist communities, third
wave feminism and its interactions with other feminist roots,
the "not trans enough" phenomenon, trans-phobia within the
feminist-lesbian communities, and any and all relevant

The deadline for submitting proposals is February 18, 2006.
