Here at BUTCH Voices we are invested in the power of advocacy, storytelling, and laughter. We are proud to announce Kelli Dunham as one of our keynote speakers for BUTCH Voices 2019!
Kelli is the genderqueer ex-nun storytelling nurse comic, so common in modern Brooklyn. Kelli has appeared on Showtime and the Discovery Channel, the Moth Mainstage, Hello Sunshine’s My Best Break Up, the Cinderblock Comedy Festival, the Risk podcast, the Gotham Storytelling Festival, and nationwide at colleges, prides, fundraisers, and even the occasional livestock auction. Kelli was nominated as a 2015 White House Champion of Change (NOT under the current administration) for her work as the co-founder and producer of Queer Memoir, NYC’s longest-running most super earnest LGBT storytelling event.
Kelli is the author of seven hilarious nonfiction books about very not humorous subjects (include kids’ guides to puberty) and recently helped set the Guinness World Record for longest comedy show/multiple performers.
New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio once called Kelli a show off. To her face.
Folks who attended our first BUTCH Voices national conference in 2009, will also remember Kelli from our Steering Committee, as she was our first Performance Chair. Join us in welcoming Kelli Dunham back to BUTCH Voices.
Kelli’s keynote speech will be our first of two keynotes, and will take place on Friday, August 16, 2019 at Oakstop. We are excited that Kelli joins Nalo Zidan as our keynote speakers for BUTCH Voices 2019. These keynotes are open to all paid conference registrants, and events that you will not want to miss.
