TYLS 2018 information:

Eligibility requirements:

1. You are trans, two spirit, Hijra, genderqueer, or nonbinary (please contact us if you feel your identity should be included on this list)
2. You are located in the United States
3. You are available to go to our Summit in Los Angeles on July 13th-16th

We hope to be as transparent as possible in our signup process. We are able to cover all expenses incurred during the summit for our participants (travel, food, etc), so please consider applying even if you are not able to pay for them yourself. You can learn more about selection and sign up using Google Forms here. To make TYLS as accessible as possible, we also have an essay-optional video application. If you cannot apply but know someone who can, you can also nominate them! If you’d like to print out a copy of a mailable/printable TYLS application, follow this link.

The 2016 Trans Youth Leadership Summit took place at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles in July. Over 20 young trans leaders attended the event. If you’re curious about what happened at the last summit, you can look at our schedule from last year and photos.
