“It was a great pleasure to spend time with Greg at our university. His presentation was inspiring and extremely relevant for our students, faculty, and staff. His love and respect for others were truly evident in his talk, but also in his interactions with attendees before and after the event. Our Lambda Gay-Straight alliance student group especially enjoyed his presentation and the time they spent with him afterward. We need more people like Greg in this world who are passionate about the equality and civil rights of all people and who are not afraid to speak their truth and encourage others to do the same.”Elizabeth Honeycutt, M.A., Tennessee Tech University
