“If you come in knowing nothing, you’ll leave knowing more. If you come in knowing everything, you’ll still leave knowing more. The presenters, Maybe & Isobel, are engaging and able and willing to meet where you are to help you become the best possible ally to the trans community.” – Sept 2018, Onsite Ally/Advocate Training Camp participant
