Fleur Pierets is a bestselling writer, an artist and an award winning human rights speaker. She talks and writes about the importance of investigating which boundaries are ours, and which are a social construction. About positive advocacy, protest art and the need to look more often at what binds us than at what keeps us apart.

She talks at consulates and embassies worldwide and at companies like Google and WeWork in New York, about the work she and her wife did as a female artist couple. About their online publication Et Alors? Magazine, the importance of inclusion, of completing the wedding performance piece, and the need to keep on working as a human rights advocate by launching bridge-building projects.

The keynote is an invitation and a dialogue about responsibility and how you can effect change in the world through positive communication.

In 2023 she’s was invited by the EU and the UN to talk about LGBTQ human rights during IDAHOT in Washington.
