It needs to get better for queer, trans, and questioning youth

The most powerful way we reach people in the wider community is by sharing our personal experience as queer, trans, or questioning folks and allies. Our Speakers’ Bureau panels provide opportunities for youth (ages 22 and under) to share their personal narratives and knowledge, and for audience members to ask questions in a safe environment.

Being a Speakers’ Bureau member does not require a specific time commitment, but it does require a small amount of training. As requests are scheduled, ORVT staff will ask youth to participate. Youth ages 22 and under, of all identities are welcome. If you would like to join our Speakers’ Bureau, please contact our Director of Education at
