Jenn T. Grace teaches straight people how to market to gay people and gay people how to market themselves. Upon noticing a need in the marketplace for educational tools aimed at well meaning straight allies, she set out to fill the void in 2012.  In addition to educating straight audiences, she also coaches gay entrepreneurs in one-on-one settings to help them grow their businesses. She has written two Amazon Best Selling books and is currently working on several others. As a blogger, podcaster and speaker you can find Jenn involved in anything where business intersects with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) issues. She has been in the LGBT marketing space since 2006 and holds a M.S. in Integrated Marketing Communications from Golden Gate University and a B.S. in Communications from Salem State University.

Based in Hartford, Connecticut you can follow Jenn on Twitter or connect with her on LinkedIn.
