Transgender Advocacy Speakers Bureau
Our Transgender Advocacy Speakers Bureau offers faith communities, businesses, non-profits, and community organizations the opportunity to host a transgender or non-binary speaker. One story at a time, we are helping to foster deeper connections and build understanding for Virginia’s trans and non-binary community. Fill out this form to schedule a speaker!
Equality Virginia works with organizations to coordinate an hour-long discussion, which will be facilitated by one of our trans or non-binary speakers. They will discuss their life and the landscape for LGBTQ equality in Virginia. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and get connected to different opportunities for engagement.
People love connecting with transgender community members:
“This was the most moving and transformational event I have attended at [my congregation] in over 40 years of membership.”
“Through listening to peoples’ stories, this program helped me come to my own “aha” moment of greater clarity and empathy.”
“Education and meeting people is an important step in ridding yourself of any previous misconceptions that you might have.”
“It’s important to realize that we are talking about people, and important to hear their stories as fellow human beings.”
