Whether you just want to be a better ally to LGBTQ people, or if you want to create a better workplace, home, or organization for everyone, this crash course in LGBTQ terminology and policy will arm you with the basics so you don't accidentally put your foot in your mouth!

  • Learn the difference between sexual orientation and gender identity, and why it matters
  • Learn why there is a difference between gay/lesbian and the word homosexual
  • Learn words to use and words to avoid ("queer" isn't one of them)

"This is a great introductory course for anyone who wants to become quickly familiar with the basics of the LGBTQIA+ experience. I particularly appreciated the overview of gender identity concepts and the appropriate use of pronouns as those areas have always been unclear to me. Now I feel like I can be a more informed advocate and speak more confidently when engaging with members of the community and other allies."

Hi, I’m Sean, and I'm the Nonprofit Fixer!

I’ve worked in nonprofit organizations since I was 16 (over 28 years).

I'm a coach, consultant and course creator helping to transform nonprofits and their leaders.

I love nonprofits. I study nonprofits. I also lead and fix nonprofits. Whether it's local, state, or national - or charitable or political – I have helped grow and develop organizations of all kinds. I've served as an Executive Director for 5 organizations. I am a coach and consultant for boards, executive directors, and activists of all stripes. I’ve worked in communications, victim services, civil rights, environment, policy, bullying prevention, lobbying, management, and much more.

I learned how to run a nonprofit the hard way – by watching someone do it poorly. I’ve also been thrown into the deep end and told to sink or swim. I don’t want that to happen to anyone else, so I have made it a commitment to my business to train people on how to effectively fundraise and manage organizations for maximum impact. I’m nationally known and respected, and I’m a really swell guy (just wait, you’ll see!).

Best of all, I cut through the BS. My tools and trainings are straight-to-the-point, immediately useful, and chock-full of tips and tactics you can start using today.

I have raised money for a wide variety of causes, community projects, political campaigns, and much more. He is a published author of "Fundraising Power Pack"

I live in New York City with my husband Travis and my adorable dog, Harry!
