GO Proudly Presents: 100 Women We Love, Class Of 2022

100 Women We Love

Well, look who showed up on page 79 of GOMagazine’s annual feature of their Pride edition, “Women We Love.” I am beyond thrilled to be included on this list with such an amazing group of women. Especially on this date, when we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Title IX. The work, and the struggle, continue. It indeed takes a village.

I can remember back to one of my first NYC Pride Marches after coming out, grabbing a copy of GO Magazine, and thinking “wouldn’t it be great to be on this list someday?” I love it when things come full circle like that. My heartfelt thanks to everyone at GO Magazine for including me in this incredible collective of voices for change in our world.

Let’s Talk Gender Identity

What a privilege to be included amongst such an amazing group of voices for our movement! Thank you again for having me!

Thank you for joining us for our #FARSIGHTFRIDAY last week on Gender Identity. This was a powerful conversation that covered everything from recent laws and attacks on our trans communities, to the need for advocacy over allyship, to best practices for what advocates and allies can do in society and in the workplace, to supporting our children and youth who are exploring their own gender expansion. If you missed it, stay tuned for the video coming soon!

National Speakers Association-NYC Chapter Blog Post

Two days after the book event at the Historic Stonewall Inn Mari and I found ourselves at the Scandinavia House on Park Avenue where I had the chance to speak to my fellow speakers at the monthly meeting of the New York City chapter of the National Speakers Association.  For me, this was one of those “full circle” moments of my life.  You see, there is history that I have with the NSA from a few years back when I was vainly trying to make a transition (ha!) from my unfulfilling corporate gig and switch to a career as a speaker. The NSA was a place where I was able to find valuable information and insights on what one needs to do to develop a successful speaking practice.  It was during this period of my life that I met and became friends with Jeanne Stafford, who is now the President of the NYC chapter and was beyond instrumental in having me speak there.  Because of the pandemic, it was two years in the making, but worth the wait and then some!  Thank You, Jeanne!!
