His story has appeared everywhere from 60 Minutes to The Washington Post. Schuyler’s tireless advocacy has earned him numerous honors, including LGBTQ Nation’s Instagram Advocate for 2020. In 2021, Schuyler released his first middle-grade novel, Obie Is Man Enough. And in 2022, Schuyler created LaneChanger.com, a learning series that makes gender literacy education accessible to every team, school, and company.
