With years of experience teaching at both the high school and collegiate level and a mountain of knowledge of queer history and theory, Lady J's workshops explore individual LGBTQ topics through a combination of lecture, demonstrations, and interactive elements. Whether you want to prep college students for a drag ball or educate your corporate staff about gender identity and expression in the workplace, she has a course or offering to fit your needs. Lady J will be happy to create a workshop to suit your specific needs on any LGBTQ topic and is available both in and out of drag.
