The Gender Advocacy Place and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion are bringing to campus Ryan Sallans to present “FTM: Scouting the Unknown.”
Sallans is a public speaker, diversity trainer, consultant, publisher and author specializing in health care, campus inclusion and workplace issues impacting the transgender community, as well as the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer/Questioning, Intersex and Asexual (LGBTQIA) community. After his appearance in the documentary Gender Rebel featured on MTV’s LOGO network in 2006, he began traveling to universities where he shares the story of his transition from female to male. His story is told with an intermixing of humor and intricate clinical details surrounding the transition process. Sallans’ presentation is an important opportunity as our campus community lifts up the core value of diversity this year.
Over 30 students signed up to volunteer with the Gender Advocacy Place at NWU’s student organization fair. Co-coordinators are planning an exciting semester beginning with a VIP visit from an old friend of Wesleyan next Wednesday, 7pm, Callen. Who will next week’s special guest be? Here’s a hint: Scout.
