About the Event
"The State of Curly Hair: A 2023 Update with Zander Moricz"
Join Venice Pride, Inc. in a Conversation with Zander Moricz. He is a nationally known LGBTQ activist who attracted global media attention last year, as he publicly challenged school and State restrictions stemming from the “Don’t Say Gay” bill.
Zander was the class President of his graduating class at Pine View School, a widely acclaimed school in Florida. For his graduation speech, Zander was told that he had to censor his speech and not to refer to his LGBTQ activism.
Zander worked around that with a very powerful metaphor, which he incorporated into his speech, about being discriminated for having "curly" hair. Zander's charismatic speech instantly became viral and featured by many national news outlets.
Zander's accomplishments and impact to the community are many. He was a previous recipient of the Venice Pride, Inc. scholarship and he is currently serving as the Executive Director of SEE Alliance (The Social Equity Through Education Alliance). This is a group involved in working with young people and energizing voters.
Participate in this enlightening evening with Zander Moricz, which will include time for questions and conversation.
