The Metro Trans Umbrella Group of St. Louis has multiple presentations and a robust multifaceted educational program. The MTUG Trans 101 presentation is designed to answer basic questions about Trans people and experiences, and to clarify terminology and define best practices for Trans cultural competency. It does so with plenty of time for personal narrative from the facilitators and Q & A
Jaimie became Board President of the Metro Trans Umbrella Group in 2015, after serving on the board for two years, following the transit in from a 24 year career in the wine and spirits business. She found out that the skills of sales management, business management, presentation and public speaking translate well to the non-profit world. Jaimie routinely facilitates MTUG Trans 101-103 trainings, and speaks at conferences in plenaries, panel discussions, and workshops regarding the intersection of Trans identities, lived experiences, and human rights, as well as advocate through intersectional Trans activism for equality.
She is passionate about Trans/LGBTQIA+ equality, racial justice, and empowering & intersectional feminism.
