Description

Storytelling allows us to learn from another person’s experience and shapes, strengthens, or challenges our opinions. When these voices will catch our attention and engage us, we are more likely to absorb the message and meaning within it than if the same message was presented simply in facts and figures.

Listen, watch, meet and get inspired by LGBT+ voices that change workplaces. GET YOUR TICKET NOW FOR 150 Kč. FREE DRINKS & SPIRITS INCLUDED.

Lenka Králová
Software Developer, Pure Storage and founder of the talk show V Tranzu

Lenka Králová (41) is a software developer by profession with extensive experience in marketing. She is a board member of the Transparent organization, which advocates for a better life for trans people in Czechia. In 2020, she founded V Tranzu – a popular Youtube show where she interviews other trans people about their life. The show recently reached a total of one million views. It helps people in the beginning of their transition journey and shows the general public that trans people are just like everyone else just with an extra complication. She often speaks to the media and politicians about issues that trans people in Czechia have to face. She became fully aware of her gender identity at the age of 37, and a year later she began hormone therapy. She prefers to spend her free time with her ten-year-old son and her fiancée.

Seeing this reproduced in everyday life, however, is still a rarity.
