As this was the first such conference in Florida, one would expect problems to occur. Some problems did occur, but not enough to mar the conference.
A few presenters used their presentations for self-promotion, but none mentioned in these articles did so. Commercials do not belong in conferences.
The discussion of synthetic drugs veered into a defense of police practices. The presenter implied that perceived police brutality arose from a failure to understand the problems police face with synthetic drugs. While people should discuss police brutality, particularly towards African-American males, the presentation took too long. No time remained for questions. When a presenter brings up controversial issues, it becomes even more important to have time for questions.
The conference lacked any presentations on transmen or male physiological issues for transwomen.
Despite these three problems, I look forward to attending the conference next year.
