Kelli Dunham calls herself many things; we think a "Nerd On A Mission" is probably the most accurate. A typical skateboard-riding, houseboat-dwelling, stealth gender non-variant, too-many-book reading ex-nun comic, this woman has so much to say that she's released two CDs: Almost Pretty and I Am NOT a 12 Year Old Boy.
Her writing has been syndicated nationally, received several Vice Versa awards and is regularly featured in Curve Magazine. Her comedy has been seen at colleges, clubs, women’s festivals and pride celebrations nationwide as well both on the Showtime Network and the Discovery Channel and on Sirius OutQ and Rawdog stations.
Kelli, a registered nurse, is the author of four books of humorous non-fiction, including two children's books being used by a conservative home schooling association in their science curriculum. She is also a contributor to numerous anthologies including Love's Funny That Way (Sterling Press, 2006), Squeaky Clean Comedy (Andrew McNeil Press, 2005), She’s So Funny (Andrew McNeil Press, 2004), Dangerous Families (Haworth Press, 2004), and Life’s a Stitch (Random House, 2002).

- Diversity Issues - Interactive Presentation: Lgbtq 101: What’s So Funny About Diversity

This offer also available to PFLAG groups, because Kelli just likes PFLAG folks an awful lot.
