Campus Pride’s Speakers Bureau helps support your campus community with a diversity of artists, entertainers and speakers that reflect the LGBTQ and ally community. In addition to their expertise and, or talent, these individuals represent the values of Campus Pride and share our work across the country. When you book these individuals through Campus Pride, a portion of the speaking fees come back to support the nonprofit organization and our work to create safer, more welcoming LGBT campus communities across the country.
