Following his talk, The Empathy Effect: Lessons for LGBTQ+ Youth and Allies on How to Have Conversations That Lead to Change, Marpheen shared a few online resources for anyone interested in exploring further how to connect with people across differences through empathy. We also recorded the Zoom event and can share a link to anyone interested in Marpheen’s presentation. His speech linked to below became the impetus for his memoir, Moon in Full: A Modern Coming-of-Age Story, due out from Islandport Press in June 2022.
