Kelli Dunham is the genderqueer nurse-comic-author-ex-nun hybrid so common in modern Brooklyn.
Kelli was one of Velvet Park Magazine’s 25 Significant Women of 2011, was named to the 2012 Campus Pride Hotlist and has appeared on Showtime and the Discovery Channel and nationwide at colleges, prides, fundraisers and even the occasional livestock auction. She is also an RN and the author of five books of humorous non-fiction, including two children’s books being used by Sonlight conservative home schooling association in their science curriculum. Kelli’s fifth book, Freak of Nurture, a collection of humorous essays published by Topside Press caused award-winning author Barbara Carellas to give Kelli the moniker “the David Sedaris of the queer world.”
Kelli has released four comedy CDs: “I am NOT a 12 Year Old Boy” “Almost Pretty,” “Why Is the Fat One Always Angry” and “Trigger Warning” all which are on regular rotation on Sirius/XM Satellite Radio’s Rawdog Comedy Station and Pandora’s Margaret Cho Station.
Kelli likes to speak to college students about humor, health, storytelling, LGBT life and gender, mostly all at the same time.
