About this talk

We live in a society that wants us to be real, but within the confines of what is expected of us based on the gender we were assigned at birth. For many LGBTQ+ individuals, coming out or living your truth often subjects you to discrimination, homelessness, family rejection and more. I will share my story as a Latinx, disabled, queer, and gender nonconforming man and provide tips for how authenticity serves as my superpower. I believe that authenticity is essential to to true belonging.
