May 8th Jessica Lynn to Speak at the Lewes Public Library Rehoboth TransLiance in conjunction with Rehoboth PFLAG is proud to host Jessica Lynn speaker, transgender advocate and a global ambassador for the Kinsey institute. The event is 6 pm, May 8th 2018 at the Lewes public library. This is part of an ongoing effort by PFLAG and RTL to inform and educate our community on LGBTQ issues. All are welcome. If you are a parent, educator, administrator, advocate, LGBTQ ally, or just seeking enlightenment this is the presentation for you.

International speaker and outspoken advocate for transgender issues, Jessica Lynn is renowned around the globe for her dynamic, refreshingly honest speaking style and ongoing tour series. Lynn is consistently in demand at many of the world's biggest universities, zigzagging the planet from college to college in an effort to educate and inform students on her own experiences as a parent living as a transgender woman.

As the former president of Your True Gender, a non-profit based in California, and now a Global Ambassador to the Kinsey Institute, Lynn also helps coordinate workshops and conferences. Her position in life has left her uniquely qualified to testify to the hardships as well as the ultimate fulfillment of gender transition, in legal standing and in her personal life. Her last conference, which she led in October of 2015, brought leading experts in medicine, psychology, and legality to bridge an extensive array of subject matter to thousands of attendees from across the united States. Currently, she is in the process of organizing a two day conference for November 2018 with The Kinsey Institute to help share knowledge of the transgender and non-binary communities with researchers from universities around the world.

Lynn is a loving parent, fiercely dedicated to her children. Her mission in educating students on her story is to reunite with her youngest son, who after a botched Texas court ruling, was taken from her due to her transgender status. She is an advocate, educator, and parent who is actively engaged in pressing conversations surrounding the transgender experience.

Listeners can attest to the often-personal connections they have made with her, experiencing a full range of emotions. Her signature Q&A session is almost unheard of, in that no trans subject is ever off-limits. The takeaway is a meaningful, rich understanding of the issues at hand that no book or article can truly convey.
