Precious Brady Davis is truly a renaissance woman. You may recognize her name from being the first Trans bride on TLC’s Say Yes to The Dress, but she was trailblazing for years before that: promoting diversity advocacy, LGBTQ rights, environmental justice and more. An award-winning diversity advocate, communications professional, and public speaker, she currently serves as the associate regional communications director at the Sierra Club. She served for three years as the assistant director of diversity recruitment initiatives at Columbia College Chicago, her alma mater, implementing the campus-wide diversity initiative and providing leadership and oversight of national diversity recruitment and inclusion policy initiatives. She also served as the youth outreach coordinator at the Center on Halsted, the largest LGBTQ community center in the Midwest. During Precious's tenure, she launched a $1.6 million CDC HIV prevention grant, which provided outreach, education, youth programming, and testing services to over three thousand young African American and Latinx gay, bi, and trans youth. Precious is married to Myles Brady and lives in Hyde Park on the South Side of Chicago, where they are raising their daughter, Zayn. For the first time ever, Precious is telling her story in her own words with the debut of her memoir I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN ME which releases TOMORROW, JULY 1st, 2021! https://www.amazon.com/Have-Always-Been-Me-Memoir/dp/1542044316/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=
