Why do we need LGBTQ keynote speakers?

A lack of acceptance and inclusivity often leads to a breakdown in our teams and communities. Hosting an LGBTQ speaker will inspire positive change and the creation of inclusive spaces. Consider hiring a speaker for an event focussed on:

  • International Transgender Day of Visibility (March)
  • Lesbian Visibility Day (April)
  • International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (May)
  • Pride Month (June)
  • Bisexual Awareness Week (September)
  • National Coming Out Day (October 11)
  • LGBTQ History Month (February in the UK, October in the US)
  • Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) (November 20)

Our experienced roster of LGBTQ speakers is available to help you raise awareness and inspire a better, more diverse, and inclusive world. Interested? Email us at for information on these speakers, LGBTQ event themes, and more.

The final word, however, goes to Lady Gaga: “Don’t you ever let a soul in the world tell you that you can’t be exactly who you are.”
