Ryan Sallans, MA is an inspirational LGBTQ speaker and author who specializes in inclusion, diversity, healthcare and building self confidence. For the past 20 years, Ryan has worked in the fields of eating disorders, recovery, and human sexuality. He is an internationally known gender expert, who specializes in building inclusive environments that include trauma-informed care for transgender students, patients, employees and clients. His growing body of texts and teachings in relation to eating disorder recovery, sexual orientation, gender and identity development assist corporations, healthcare institutions, federal agencies, universities, and communities.
Ryan’s approach to inclusion, diversity and healthcare is unique in that he uses the craft of storytelling guided by his academic degrees and experiences in cultural anthropology, English and educational psychology to assist audiences in understanding how to communicate and build better relationships with each other, while also learning a little more about themselves.
Since his own transition from female to male, which began in May of 2005 in Lincoln, Nebraska, Ryan’s story and work has reached people worldwide through his websites, books, articles, speaking engagements, and interviews including radio, podcasts, magazines, newspapers, and mainstream television – the documentary Gender Rebel, Larry King Live, Ricki: The New Ricki Lake Show, Trisha and Cheddar TV.
