Why Won’t Kansas State University Pay This Trans Speaker’s Fee?


Ryan Sallans was born a woman. He is now a man. And lord, he’s cute! He makes money by hitting the public speaking circuit, talking about everything from his “chest surgery” to his “lower surgery” (cost: $21,342.60). This Thanksgiving, he was set to speak at Kansas State University, Salina, for which he’d collect a $1,000 fee. And while the speaking gig is still listed on Ryan’s website, he shouldn’t make any travel plans: The Student Senate just rejected a funding request to pay Ryan’s fee. Supposedly it’s because the student body government didn’t think anyone would show up during the holiday. Which, uh, might be true.
