There is a conference here in Dallas, Texas at Double Tree Hilton @ North park & 75 from April 27, to May 3, 2015.

Each day transgender people are faced with bias that affects all areas of life. The National Transgender Discrimination Survey, Injustice at Every Turn: A Look at Black Respondents reports, Black trans and gender non-conforming people reported experiencing the highest levels of discrimination of all transgender people based on the combination of anti-transgender bias with structural and individual racism.

Key Issues that affect the black trans community as a result of discrimination based on race and gender are inequities in income, education, employment, housing, health, legal justice and interfaith support.
