Rainbow Speakers Panels

The Rainbow Optimist Club offers a unique opportunity for rural communities to hear directly from members of LGBT2Q+ communities through our Rainbow Speakers Panels.

The Rainbow Speaker Panel went virtual in 2020. The panels are designed with a focus on LGBT2Q+ teens, but all are welcome.  The Rainbow Optimists want teens to be able to bring their families and friends.  It depicts people who live and work in their local community and identify as LGBT2Q+.  Potential topics could include their careers, life lessons learned and first-hand experience of life in their community.
