Born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska I am an outspoken advocate for LGBTQIA equality with a long history of advocacy work! I started speaking out back in 2000 working on the campaign against 416! My work continued as an outspoken advocate on a personal level as well as professional level as an out member of the community in all areas of my life. In 2010 I helped to establish Heartland Pride which is the current 501c3 non profit organization that produces the Pride Parade and Festival.

I host a podcast on my website called Speaking Of Happy and share enlightening conversations with local LGBTQIA+ people living in the midwest. I am a public speaker and presenter and have given presentations at Union Pacific along with other local small businesses.

I am certified to train the Teaching Transgender Toolkit which was created by Eli R. Green, PhD and Luca Maurer, MS.

I work as a Video Producer/Director and I love telling stories that make a difference in the world! If you have a story to share please email me at elirigatuso@catchcreative.com
