Lead with Pride Speaker Series: Ivan Coyote

March 10 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

The 2021 Lead with Pride Conference Series taking place February 24 – March 11, 2021. Join us March 10th for a Speaker Series event featuring writer and performer Ivan Coyote!

Ivan Coyote is a writer and storyteller who was born and raised in Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada. In 2019 Ivan marked 25 years on the road as an international touring storyteller and musician, and released their twelfth book, Rebent Sinner. Coyote’s stories grapple with the complex and intensely personal topics of gender identity, family, class, and queer liberation, but always with a generous heart, and a quick wit. Ivan’s stories manage to handle both the hilarious and the historical with reverence and compassion, and remind us all of our own fallible and imperfect humanity, while at the same time inspiring us to change the world.

This event prioritizes students, but is open to all U of T students*, staff, faculty, librarians and alumni. U of T emails are required for registration.

*Students who register for the Lead with Pride Learning Community, are preregistered for this Speaker Series. Find more info on Learning Community.

What is Lead with Pride?

Our campuses, cities and communities thrive when LGBTQ2S+ students are supported in developing their leadership skills. Since 2009, the Lead with Pride (LWP) conference series has provided over a thousand students opportunities to gain skills to make a positive impact on U of T and beyond, to move our communities towards a more inclusive present and future for all of us.

Though we are apart during COVID times, it is still important for us to connect with one another to meaningfully explore issues that impact our communities and to build our capacity to face these challenges together.

Join us for the 2021 Lead with Pride Conference Series held virtually between February 24 – March 11, 2021.

The 2021 Lead with Pride Conference Series is proudly sponsored by U of T affinity partners mbna and TD Insurance. Discover the benefits of affinity products.
