Erica Fischer

 Ryan Sallans, a transgender speaker, author, and advocate, will be sharing his story of recovery from an eating disorder, as well as his transition from female to male.

FREE and open to the campus & community.

Ryan shares his transition story where he explores the intersections of identity as his identities changed. His story begins with his childhood and the struggles he had with his body, before moving into his college years where he struggled with anorexia nervosa. When he began coming out as transgender, he speaks to his experiences around rejection from family and his lesbian partner, discrimination from healthcare providers and employment, and struggles with financial resources to assist in his physical transition.
