Keynote with Brock McGillis

Join our host Claudia Hartout for our special keynote presentation.

Brock McGillis is a former OHL and professional hockey player. Brock is the first male professional hockey player to openly come out as gay and has become an influential advocate for the LGBTQ+ community.

Brock’s passion lies with creating shifts for youth. Struggling with his sexuality and feeling like he couldn't be himself throughout his youth, Brock became depressed and had suicidal thoughts. Having overcome that, he now speaks on the importance of language, the impacts of bullying as well as the importance of mental health. He also works with the LGBTQ+ youth to empower themselves through acceptance and love.

Popup drag performance by Claudia Hartout and an audience Q&A.
