My name is Heather Hogan and I’m a TED Talks junkie. I have the TED Talk app on my phone, the TED Talks podcast on my iPod, and I follow TED Talks on every social media platform available. What can I say? I like ideas worth spreading! Over the past couple of years, TED has hosted a variety of queer and queer-adjacent speakers who have joined together to spread messages of hope and humor across the entire internet. (Which is to say: across the entire world.) Here are six of the most inspiring and uplifting queer-themed TED Talks of all time.

From Ash Beckham’s ‘Coming Out of Your Closet’ to iO Twillet Wright’s ‘Fifty Shades of Gay,” see the list at
