Last week I was fortunate enough to be invited to speak to the Human Sexuality class at Orange County College (thanks Hernando:) about Gender and Transgenderism.
I recently started doing educational public speaking recently, so I still get a bit nervous when speaking in front of a crowd, yet alone a classroom with peers around my age… Thankfully, I had the legendary Buck Angel to lead the conversation.
I talked about my transition and fighting dysphoria being AMAB (assigned male at birth), and how working in the adult industry has led me to feel solace in my mind, body, and soul as a TS.
This was a good test-drive for my talk at UC Irvine next week about sex work, sex positivity, and its role in combating rape culture. This time I am speaking to almost triple the amount of people and double amount the time! Wish me luck!
