Featured Speaker: Wesley Hamilton

Wesley Hamilton’s journey after surviving multiple gunshots in his abdomen will inspire every human on the earth. His quintessential stories of courage, strength and perseverance resonates with participants long after any talk he’s ever delivered. Wes instills the essential tools of positivity, self-awareness, empowerment, resilience, and acceptance in the face of any challenge. He believes “the highest human act is to inspire” – and that is exactly why he is profoundly affecting human hearts of all ages, races, lifestyles and backgrounds worldwide.

Wes shares one of the most powerful stories on the premiere of the hit show on Netflix’s Season 4 of Queer Eye (airing July 19, 2019), and has been featured countless times in the media, including CNN, ABC News, BBC, CNN, CTV and TMZ.
