Greg R. Baird


National Lecturer on LGBTQ Civil Rights & Equality, Anti Hate/Bullying, Inclusion & Acceptance 

What audiences have said about Greg!

Greg's presentation was inspiring and extremely relevant for our students, faculty, and staff. His love and respect for others were truly evident in his talk, but also in his interactions with attendees before and after the event. Our Lambda Gay-Straight alliance student group especially enjoyed his presentation. We need more people like Greg in this world who are passionate about the equality and civil rights of all people and who are not afraid to speak their truth and encourage others to do the same.

Greg Baird has a valuable message with practical advice on how to interact on social media in a positive manner and to become an active participant in improving climate as opposed to being a passive bystander.  The Pulse Nightclub film had a tangible effect on the audience; parents, staff, and students alike.  You could see everyone put themselves in the shoes of a mother, victim, witness, or friend connected with that tragedy, and the true resonance in the audience that something has to be done to prevent similar actions from ever repeating.
