As many of you may have seen on TBC's social media our 2015 conference will be November 20th to November 22nd at the Springfield Sheraton in Springfield MA. Our keynote speaker will be bisexual activist, Faith Cheltenham.
Faith has been a major player in LGBT activism in the US for the past 15 years. Earlier this year she made history, being the first leader of a bisexual non-profit to have a private meeting with the president and witness an executive order signing. In 2013 she co-organized the first bisexual community issues roundtable at the White House.
In addition to her political activism, Faith has appeared on several major news outlets and in PSAs for the American Institute of Bisexuality. Faith is a published author, writing for for both LGBT and mainstream media. An accomplished stand-up comic, Faith brought humor and activism together in 2009 by organizing the first “Zombie Pirates For Healthcare Reform” protest.
Currently she serves as president of BiNet USA, the original founders of the Transcending Boundaries Conference. We couldn’t be happier to be connecting with our BiNet roots by working with Faith this year.
