    Counting the days as well!! Although I attended multiple Southern Comfort conferences in Atlanta and Fort Lauderdale, this will be my first Keystone… finally!

    Can’t wait to see you all there!! MAYBE we can get together for a group photo for all the CD.com girls or possibly sit together for Saturday’s dinner?!?

    See you soon!

    I am up for a group photo as well. We just need some way to coordinate it and know exactly who will be there.

    I will be there for Wednesday evening through Saturday morning, my third visit, and my first visit in over 5 years. I am very excited to catch up with the many people I have met there both from this forum and outside of this forum.

    My only regret that I won’t be meting up with the moderators who can not attend, they have been good friends and my support system throughout some low times. Especially you Di !

    Looking forward to Keystone this year. I haven't been in three years and have really missed it. I can't wait to catch up with old friends and make new ones. If you see me there, don't be shy. Say "Hi" and that you recognize me from the forum.

    We should pick a time and place to meet up.

    Since it's a new venue, it's hard to pick a place.

    I propose 5PM Friday night at the front desk.

    Group picture anyone?
    Hi, I'm Steffi and I'm a crossdresser... And I accept and celebrate both sides of me. Or, maybe I'm gender fluid.

    Thanks for posting the picture! Do you know who is who? It would be nice to put a board name with each.

    Oh, and I'm struck by the image of the girl on the left. That could easily be me, except I was 1000 miles away.
    Jenn A --- nothing fancy, just me.

    Thanks for posting. To answer Jenn's question, I don't know everyone's board names, but Sometimes Steffi is at the far right. I am behind and to the left of her. Samantha 2015 is in the back row and centered.

    Hi Everyone,

    I know each of us had our own reasons for attending the Keystone Conference, I wish to share mine. Over the years in my transition I had to look in many places for my medical answers. And even though I came to transition later in life I had little social contact with people in my community. Keystone offered me socialization in an organized event.

    I attended many workshops and found each of them worth while, it gave me an opportunity to ask question on various subject and compare them to what I had experienced. The lunches and and the banquet were very uplifting.

    The Social side of thing is where I struggled. Their seems to be many people who use the conference to dress up and is a safe place. In my opinion it doesn't seem to free them from still feeling closeted. I did see a few people that I met feel better after a few days but not many. The people who have come year after year had made connections with other people seem to organize social activities outside the conference.

    In closing I don't think I would go to as many workshops (did four a day), and plan some activities to relax and hopefully make friends. I am glad we had a chance to meet up and take pictures. I would be interested on other feel about the conference.

    Love you all
    Leasa

    Leasa,

    This was my first Keystone and I had a blast. I went to a couple of workshops but had little interest in most of them. I am not closeted and live virtually 100% of my life as a woman and I was intent on meeting and socializing with as many gals as possible in order to expand my circle of CD friends and acquaintances. Keystone was perfect for that.
