Speaker

Educator/Advocate


DAN DUKES

In 2008 I started the process to transition from female to male and live my "best life". As a Transgender man I have navigated family life, relationships, health issues, and the workplace. I have become an advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community and an accomplished speaker. I have been asked to speak to mental health professionals, educators, health care providers, students, and business owners about diversity and inclusion.

My messages of equality are filled with hope, humor, and inspiration. I have been a Human Rights Commissioner since 2015 upholding Chapter 7, Civil Rights of the City Code to include that all citizens have an opportunity to employment, social,and economic life without regard to race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, age, sex, place of birth, disability, or familial status. We are the only Human Rights Commission in the state of Oklahoma.
