Schuyler is the first trans athlete to compete in any sport on an NCAA D1 men’s team, and the only to have competed for all four years. He is an internationally-celebrated inspirational speaker and a respected advocate for inclusion, body-positivity, and mental health awareness.

Schuyler graduated from Harvard College in May 2019 with a degree in Cognitive Neuroscience and Evolutionary Psychology. His studies focused on social emotional learning, emotional intelligence, and education. He is a tireless advocate for inclusion through speaking engagements and social media. Schuyler also holds on-going advisory roles with Monte Nido & Affiliates (the leading eating disorder treatment provider), Plume Healthcare (the first trans-specific healthcare provider) and American Eagle Outfitters (the AExME advisory council) and is a research assistant at Harvard University.

At the Queer College Conference students will have the opportunity to hear Schuyler’s story as well as ask him questions in a live session!



Hey y’all, I’m Dixie Longate. Originally from Mobile, Alabama, I started selling Tupperware as one of the conditions of my parole. I did my first party, had so much fun and got free drinks from the host so I knew this was a job for me.  
In 2007, I took my party out of the living room and onto the stage with an off-Broadway production of “Dixie’s Tupperware Party.” After sharing a little southern charm with the northerners in NY, I took my show on the road. In 2008, I started taking my party from city to city and, up until corona happened, I had been running for 12 years in 5 different countries and had become one of the longest-running off-Broadway tours in history. Now I am helping people with their food storage needs from the comfort of my trailer when I can get my dang kids out of the way.  

I’m here to share some giggles, some stories and the very best of those air-tight containers that your momma still uses after all these years. I’ll make your heart a little bigger and your food a little fresher. Trust me when I say, this ain’t your grandma’s Tupperware party.
