I think I will attend Captial Trans Pride in June. I'm rather nervous as it will be my first time presenting as a man at a large public event in the DC area. But I will be with like-minded individuals, so I should have nothing to fear. I've found that I pass well enough despite being rather small, but obviously at this event no one will accuse me of being a lady.

You'll be fine. I'm not going (I have issues with the way they set it up), but Kasey's been asked to speak and I know one of the co-chairs. Plus, DC is pretty decent about trans treatment in general. As long as you avoid the places *everyone* should avoid you're fine.

What about the way it's set up don't you like?

Mostly the fact that they call it "Pride" when in reality it's just a series of conferences. I have no objection to another conference (though we're pretty covered with Philly and Southern Comfort), but be honest about it. Don't make people think it's going to be parades and booths and parties when it's really a bunch of stuffy suits giving speeches.

That said, I may be on the Trans 101 panel simply because so far they don't have a transguy set and I get annoyed at trans panels made entirely of women.
