As a new mom, I am not able to accept many long-distance in-person speaking requests. I strongly recommend the following other speakers on issues of LGBTQIA+ inclusion and justice:

  • Austen Hartke, author of Transforming: The Bible and the Lives of Transgender Christians and founder of Transmission Ministry Collective
  • Brian and Shay of Queer Theology
  • Jamie Bruesehoff, an openly queer woman married to a Lutheran pastor and mom to three children, including a trans teen daughter.

I am only accepting speaking invitations for local (Twin Cities) or online events at this time. I’ve provided a list of requested speaking fees here. If you would like to start a conversation about a speaking opportunity, you may contact me using this form.
