Robyn has probably done more than any other person in the U.S. and perhaps even the world to educate the general public about bisexuality.

Genny Beemyn, Director of the Stonewall Center, UMass Amherst

You make people feel like they matter and that they have the power to do something about the issues that concern them, even if it’s something small on an individual level. That is a beautiful gift.

The students LOVE you. You are by far the most anticipated recurring event next to the drag show. Sorry, the queens always win out!!

Professor Charles LoPresto, Loyola University

Your presentation in my class was everything I had hoped it would be: thought-provoking and important in a very accessible way. You do such great educational work!!

Anne Phibbs, University of Minnesota

One person described their time with you as being at an ‘LGBTQ spa,’ so I think it’s safe to say that you recharged a lot of batteries and renewed and refreshed the spirits of our faculty and students. Thank you.

Kimberly, University of Illinois Springfield

Your encouraging words helped me look around and remember that we are a COMMUNITY, and the sight of so many of us in the same room brought tears to my eyes. Thank you for your long-standing example of strength, courage and the quest for…

Jess Oshkosh, University of Wisconsin

A tireless speaker, so energetic and skilled. While giving a presentation, not matter if it is just 12 people or 200, she amazingly gets everyone involved. And lightbulbs go off left and right (and beyond the binary.)
