Transcending Boundaries Keynote – VIDEO

On Saturday, November 20th, it was my absolute delight to get to deliver the keynote speech for the Transcending Boundaries Conference, in Worcester, MA.  This amazing conference was a three-day event with both academic and profoundly personal conversations ranging in topics from Asexuality to Bisexuality, Kinky to Polyamorous, Transgender to Intersex to Genderqueer… and all the spaces in-between and beyond.  Their topic this year was “Intersections”, and thus, when I was invited to give the Keynote Speech, I had the delightful and somewhat terrifying opportunity to find a message that might meet them all… and thus I started with Organic Farming.  No, really, it makes sense.

Thank you so much to and for the videography work, and for Transcending Boundaries for inviting me out to this amazing event!

One Comment:

  1. Lee,

    I was there in the audience when you gave this speech. It was the first time I had been to Transcending Boundaries, which was intense in its own myriad of ways. As someone involved in both environmental sustainability work and queer community work, your speech absolutely blew me away. I still reference it nearly one year later. Thank you for drawing the connections, thank you for speaking out, and most importantly, thank you for being you.
