Juli Owens First Event 2008 Keynote: “Choices”

An update on Juli…..
Juli was one of our most dynamic and beloved keynotes.   Her messaged challenged many of us to live beyond ourselves and to accept ourselves.  Since being our FE08 Keynote, Juli and her partner Barbara, who is fully supportive of Juli, met with New York Governor David Patterson in April 2009.  Juli is now a Board member of the NY State Pride Agenda, a statewide LGBT organization that is fighting for LGBT rights, and the Board members were invited to the Executive Mansion.  Juli was the 2009 Grand Marshall of the Long Island Pride Parade in  June and Juli also received the Long Island Outlook Magazine’s 2009 Activist of the Year Award last January.  Finally, Juli and her partner Barbara will be joining us all for First Event 2010 to present a workshop on “Living a Dual Gendered Life”.
