As a full-time solo pastor, my core ministerial call is to my congregation! For this reason, invitations to speak on a Sunday morning will require at least two months advance notice.

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
Emily Joy, poet, preacher, and author of #ChurchToo
Jamie Bruesehoff, an openly queer woman married to a Lutheran pastor and mom to three children, including a trans teen daughter.

I am primarily accepting speaking invitations for local (Twin Cities) or online events at this time. If you want to start a conversation about a speaking opportunity, you may contact me here:
