Speaking Opportunities

Spreading the message about disability and sexuality


Let’s talk about it

With over over 30 years working in the disability sector and more than 10 years’ experience in delivering training and workshops on sexuality, To Be Frank founder Claire Ryan has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the space where disability, sexuality, and gender meet.

A firm believer that information is power, Claire is passionate about spreading the message that people with disabilities should have the right to explore and express their gender and sexuality.

Claire’s work has made headlines in New Zealand for her promotion of intimacy and disability, and led to a Ministerial enquiry, with MPs debating whether nudity for disabled people should be encouraged or not.

Claire has presented at conferences in NZ, Australia, San Francisco and New York and is available to give keynote addresses or present workshops.

If you’d like to find out more about what Claire can bring to your event then we’d love to hear from you.


“To be a human being is to be a sexual being. Although there may be a range of intensity, varying over time, we all have sexual needs, feelings and drives, from the most profoundly disabled to the most able amongst us.”
