Transmission offers retreats for trans masculine, non binary, genderqueer and gender non-conforming people (AFAB) in beautiful locations in wooded northern California. Our gatherings include peer-led workshops and activities designed to support community.
Gathering for trans folks and more
Date: Aug 22-25 (4 days, 3 nights)
Time: Thurs 4 pm – Sun 2 pm
Location: Saratoga Springs, Upper Lake, CA
General Registration is open! One note: We still have some space, so people of color and those with disabilities will be immediately registered if placed on the waitlist.
This is our 5th annual summer gathering … heart circles, hiking, journaling, workshops, swimming, community discussions, music, laughter, fresh cooked meals … and 60 trans masculine folks!
- Donate to our scholarship fund.
We’ll spend 4 days/3 nights enjoying interactive workshops, fun activities, and friendship. If workshops aren’t your thing, take a dip in the pool, go for a hike, make music with friends, or just hang out.
We’ll sleep in shared cabins and bunk rooms, or you can bring your own tent or RV (sorry, no RV hookups at this site).
If you’re feeling social, you’re sure to make friends. If you need some alone time, the beautiful natural setting provides plenty of space for solitude and contemplation.
Come connect with community, relax, and have fun. You can attend workshops all day, check out one or two, or skip them altogether. If you’re feeling social, there are be plenty of folks to connect with. If you’d rather have quiet time, the woods await you. It’s all good.
Transmission is not-for-profit and produced entirely by volunteers (we have no paid staff). Registration fees offsets our costs for renting retreat sites, providing meals, and paying recurring costs (website, software, bookkeeping, event insurance, etc). Donations allow us to offer scholarships.
The group’s mission is to help trans masculine folks deepen their self-confidence, friendships, and community connections. Our heart-centered retreats are affirming and fun! And in support of our community, Transmission is substance free, scent free, and tech free.
Transmission is inclusive in terms of race, ethnicity, trans masculine gender identity, presentation style, body type, age (18+), and sexual orientation. We ask everyone to commit to kindness and respect so we all feel safe and included.
