Speaking Events with Nick
Nick reads his work and speaks on trans issues at colleges around the country, including the University of Pennsylvania, Dartmouth College, Brown University, Harvard University, University of Massachusetts Amherst, Hampshire College, Boston College, Loyola Marymount University, and University of California Berkeley (Clinical Psychology Ph. D. candidates).
He's also led workshops and been a panelist at the following conferences: Philadelphia Trans Health Conference (Philadelphia, PA), Transcending Boundaries Conference (Springfield, MA), World Professional Association of Transgender Health Symposium (Atlanta, GA), Southern Comfort Conference (Atlanta, GA), and Butch Voices Conference (Oakland, CA).
Nick brings his humor, heart-centered approach, and love for creative expression to his talks. He believes that compassionate education and thoughtful discussion inspire social change, build community, and deepen connection. And you can ask him anything -- he’s pretty sure the most personal, vulnerable, and intimate details of his experience are already in print.
What people are saying:
"Nick Krieger's energy, positivity, and frankness around issues of gender expression and trans identity made for a very successful and educational event at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Nick's humor and humility engaged the audience and made him easy to relate to. By sharing so openly about his struggles and triumphs in exploring his gender identity, Nick created a comfortable space for audience members to think more deeply about the nature of their own gender. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Nick and look forward to collaborating again soon!"
-Judy Jarvis, Assistant Director for Campus Life/LGBTQ and Gender Resources, Vassar College
"Nick draws from a deep well of personal experience and insightfully connects that which is intensely private to its broader meaning in society. With astonishing candor, wisdom, and humor, Nick forced us to question our preconceptions about gender, and invited us to begin thinking about it in a more nuanced and fluid way."
-Luma Muhtadie, University of California Berkeley, Ph. D. candidate
