Speaker's Bureau Application

Members of the LGBTQ Center Speakers’ Bureau are UNC-CH students who self-identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, asexual (LGBTIQA+), who assist the Center in education programs. Members voluntarily share their personal stories about being LGBTIQA+ and respond to questions and comments from an audience. Speakers’ Bureau panels are organized by the LGBTQ Center as part of ongoing programs or at the request of an organization. Members of Speakers Bureau speak primarily at Safe Zone trainings and in classes on UNC campus.
