True tolerance advocate to address Gender Identity Center of Colorado's 9th annual conference

Dhillon Khosla is truly an inspiration of what it means to be true to yourself despite insurmountable odds.

Dhillon Khosla, former federal staff attorney for presidential appointed judges and author of the critically acclaimed book "Both Sides Now: One Man's Journey through Womanhood" announced today that he will keynote the upcoming Gender Identity Center of Colorado's 9th annual Colorado Gold Rush Conference Friday, February 23, 2007 in Denver, Colorado. A renowned lecturer, outspoken advocate for true tolerance, and passionate voice for both men and women, Khosla is an expert on discussing gender relations from a spiritual, as opposed to political, perspective.

Born in a female body, Dhillon went through an extraordinary journey through five years and fifteen surgeries to affirm his true male identity and become the complete and integrated man he is today. His message of true tolerance and his open willingness to share how his journey forced him to confront his own shadows of intolerance - will resonate with the great many who are tired of one-sided agendas and ready for a world that truly embraces all, regardless of politics, religion, gender, and sexuality.

"We're truly excited to have someone of Dhillon's immense character and talent keynote the Gender Identity Conference," stated Eden Lane, the Colorado Gold Rush event chairwoman. "Dhillon Khosla is truly an inspiration of what it means to be true to yourself despite insurmountable odds."

"I am honored to have been selected to address the 2007 Gender Identity Conference," said Khosla. "The mission and values of the Gender Identity Center and its conference mirror my own personal beliefs of accepting others for who they are, including both gender identity and expression. On a personal note, I feel most comfortable under such a broad and inclusive label. I think this will be a very special weekend."
