Quite possibly, the best part of my most recent visit to my endocrinologist was when he mentioned a future Laverne Cox speaking engagement in December at nearby Wright State University. Fairborn/Dayton Ohio.
As I researched her visit, I was amazed at how dedicated Laverne must be to "spreading the transgender word." I count approximately 25 speaking engagements for her between now and Wright State.
If you follow the link above to her web site, you can read (among other things) this understatement:
Laverne is in demand as a speaker. She has travelled the country speaking about moving beyond gender expectations to live more authentically. Additionally, she uses and encourages an intersectional approach to critically engage with our stories.
Needless to say, I'm very excited by a chance to see her speak on her own terms about us. If you are here in Ohio by chance, she will also be at Kent State in November. For other "stops" go back to the link above!
