Rainbow Toastmasters

Community
Recently, I was invited to The SF Rainbow Toastmasters.  It was a fun-filled evening as members presented and critiqued three speeches.  In addition, there was a round of table topics where members stand up and have 1-2 minutes to offer their best to response to impromptu topics. We sat down with Rainbow Toastmaster, Michael Platania to learn more. How did the Rainbow Toastmasters begin? Ken Stram was the founder. He started the club about six or seven years ago.

He eventually left the center and Rainbow, but we are very excited that he has recently rejoined Rainbow! Why an LGBT chapter? To give us a safe space to speak…
