BAGLY Speakers Bureau

BAGLY’s Speakers Bureau is our longest, continuously running program and is the oldest and largest LGBTQ youth speakers bureau in the country.  We work with schools, mainstream youth organizations, service providers, and foundations in order to increase their capacity to provide programming that is inclusive of LGBTQ youth. Members of the program are highly skilled young LGBTQ public speakers, from across Massachusetts, who address their unique school, community and family life experiences.

Want to schedule a BAGLY Speaking Engagement at your school or agency?  Fees start at $100 per speaker depending upon size of organization and length of engagement. All fees support BAGLY’s programming and services for LGBTQ youth.  Contact us to find out more.

Want to join the BAGLY Speakers Bureau? We prepare LGBTQ young people to actively participate in changing their communities. As a member of BAGLY’s Speakers Bureau, you will learn to communicate effectively in a variety of situations, particularly in front of an audience. In addition to learning public speaking techniques (like overcoming stage fright), you will learn how to connect with an audience on an emotional level to inspire them to take action!  BAGLY convenes two statewide Speakers Bureau trainings for LGBTQ youth each year. Contact us to find out more or to sign up for the next training.
