Scheduled Events

For years I've been busy speaking to groups to share my story with the transgender community. I hope my journey has helped others who are transitioning to their true self. I'm much happier with myself as I share my journey and I express my love and compassion to those looking for their true self.

Make an appointment with me to speak to your group or organization, or for photo shoots and one-on-one interviews.

View my calendar to find scheduled speaking events and interviews that may be helpful in coping with your journey. You may also click on the calendar day to schedule an appointment for participation in your event.

                The Transgender Day of Remembrance serves several purposes. It raises public awareness of hate crimes against transgender people, an action that current media doesn't perform. Day of Remembrance publicly mourns and honors the lives of our brothers and sisters who might otherwise be forgotten. Through the vigil, we express love and respect for our people in the face of national indifference and hatred. Day of Remembrance reminds non-transgender people that we are their sons, daughters, parents, friends and lovers. Day of Remembrance gives our allies a chance to step forward with us and stand in vigil, memorializing those of us who've died by anti-transgender violence.
