Pride Month Keynote Speaker: Conversation with British Model & Trans Activist Munroe Bergdorf

Show-stopping. Defiant. Dedicated. These are just some of the few words that can describe the international sensation that Munroe Bergdorf is. An activist at heart, Munroe has not only been gracing runways, but has been fighting for against the inequality that trans people and people of color experience regularly. After making headlines as the United Kingdom’s first openly trans model to be signed by L'Oréal she has gone on to work with organizations such as UN for Women and Teen Vogue to name a few with her first major network authored documentary airing in the UK in May (Details TBA). Never one for complacency, she has carved a path of her own in order to unravel the injustices experienced by marginalized people and we are nothing but grateful for elegance and eloquence.
