Introduction (2-3 lines)
Named one of Filmmaker Magazine's "25 New Faces of Independent Film,” OUT Magazine’s “Out 100,” and Towleroad’s “LGBT Film Character Of The Year,” Kimberly Reed uses her position as the first commercially-released transgender filmmaker to tell compelling stories. Her work has been featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN, NPR, Details magazine, and the Moth Radio Hour, leading to fellowships with New York Foundation for the Arts, Squaw Valley Community of Writers, and Yaddo Artists’ Community.
"Kimberly Reed is an exceptionally talented speaker. Her experience is both unique and completely relatable. Years after her visit to my college, students are still talking about how inspired they were by her talk."
