WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
Having participated in Gabrielle's workshop (Making Your Pride Organization More Trans Friendly), at the NERP/POSE conference, when Heritage of Pride was seeking workshop leaders for our Executive Board Retreat, the decision was easy. We needed Gabrielle! Gabrielle took my call and listened to what we saw as our needs and goals. Her presentation addressed the areas that we requested, but she gave us so much more.
Let me just say that if your company or organization needs training or workshop facilitation, Gabrielle is your woman. Her communication was stellar, her demeanor both professional and familiar, and her knowledge excelled. We were so happy to have her and know that we will call on her again in the future.

Early 2016, when all of the "bathroom bills" were being passed, I set the intention to get to know more transgender people, and Gabrielle appeared in my life! When I heard her and Linda speak about transgender concerns, it opened a whole new understanding and a whole new world for me. If you have an opportunity to hear them, GO!
