Up Coming Engagement
"Adam always speaks from the heart about his experiences, including joys and struggles. He is smart, warm, and funny. You won't regret inviting him into your classroom, congregation, or community meeting. In fact, you'll be eager to ask him back!"
- Dr. Lynn Huber, Professor of Religious Studies, Elon University
I believe that dialogue is one of the essential building blocks to the understanding, acceptance, and celebration of our differences. That is why I always reserve space near the end of my presentations for questions, comments, and conversation. My hope is to create a dialogue where folks feel comfortable and encouraged to ask questions, vocalize points of discomfort, and come to a more expansive understanding of one another.
Each presentation or workshop is unique and tailored to your group’s specific needs and interests.
- A narrative storytelling of my journey as a trans person of faith
- A basic overview of terms & definitions relating to the LGBTQIA community
- Discussion of gender-expansive figures in Judeo-Christian scripture
- A 'brave space' for questions & conversation
I have experience speaking with a varied range of audiences, including but not limited to:
- Faith communities
- Church small groups
- Church youth groups
- High school students
- College students
- Panel discussions
Pricing is done on a sliding scale and every effort will be made to accommodate your group's budget.

Adam Plant caught the attention of the public eye in 2016 when he publicly rebuked the then NC Governor Pat McCrory. The Facebook post, which opposed the passage of HB2, (a bill targeting trans people’s usage of restrooms and locker rooms) quickly went viral and was featured on Buzzfeed and other local and national news outlets. Adam went on to author an op-ed for the Washington Post and garnered support from public figures, including Montel Williams. A graduate of Wake Forest University School of Divinity, Adam has a passion for sharing his story and working with faith communities to envision trans-inclusive worship spaces. He currently resides in North Carolina with his partner, dog, and a growing brood of houseplants.
