Jessica Lynn's Transgender Journey
A guest lecture
FREE & OPENED TO THE PUBLIC
Jessica Lynn is a world-renowned transgender advocate, educator, and activist. Her experiences as a transgender woman and parent led her to dedicate her life to spreading awareness and acceptance for gender non-conforming communities around the world. Over the last several years, Jessica has crisscrossed the globe sharing the story of her journey over 750 times in 27 different countries and is now internationally considered one of the foremost transgender speakers due to her dynamic, refreshingly honest speaking style and signature "ask-me-anything" Q&A sessions.
Fortunately, Jessica’s travels and presentations have caught the attention of several prestigious institutions. On behalf of both the University of Oxford and the National Institute for Health Research, Jessica has been appointed to an advisory position on a project aimed towards improving health services for gender diverse youth and their families in Great Britain. She continues serving as a Kinsey Institute Global Ambassador at Indiana University, and, after spending a great amount of time speaking in the UK, she is now a Stonewall School Role Model and a speaker to the medical community by request of the National Health Service, England.
Over these past years, Jessica has had the privilege of helping to educate tens of thousands of people about the many identities throughout the gender spectrum. She has also been working with teachers, professors, nurses, doctors, business leaders, and many others to help further the understanding of gender non-conforming communities. Jessica has collaborated with numerous experts in order to develop training and educational programs. These training programs and courses are structured to educate and give a better understanding of: the history of transgender communities; social and political impacts; challenging unconscious bias; working towards non-prejudicial and anti-discriminatory practices.
