One of the most dramatic figure skaters on the planet, Adap Rippon won the hearts of America and the world at the 2018 Winter Olympics. With his refreshing candor and wit, he used his spot on the global stage to speak out in support of LGBTQ rights and the freedom to be oneself.
Even after the Olympics were over, Rippon remained in the spotlight, becoming a role model and even an icon. He was named to Time's 100 Most Influential People list, Forbes' 30 Under 30, Out magazine's Power 50: The Most Influential Voices in LGBTQ America, and has been recognized with the Human Rights Campaign's Visibility Award and Attitude magazine's 2018 Sports Hero Award, was honored by the Matthew Shepard Foundation, and many more honors. On the eve of the publication of his memoir, Beautiful on the Outside (due September 24), Rippon is not slowing down.
Now Rippon comes to The Commonwealth Club to discuss his life, his sport, and his causes. Join us for a special up-close look at an influential young voice being heard by millions.
