TAIMI, the world’s largest LGBTQ+ platform that features a social network and dating app, is launching a flagship live streaming series — TAIMI Talks. As part of its social mission to raise awareness about LGBTQ+ issues and combat state-sponsored homophobia around the world, TAIMI is focusing on bringing attention to subjects that might be hard to face and talk about, while also providing entertaining content for the platform’s 8 million users.
The most well-known and influential LGBTQ+ celebrities, athletes, and models will become the headliners and ambassadors of TAIMI for the event. As a part of their live-streaming sessions, influential voices among the LGBTQ+ community will share their personal stories and experiences, give advice on accepting yourself, share the things they are passionate about, and hold workshops to share the experience in their field of work.
Alyssa Edwards, the star of the Netflix hit Dancing Queen and one of the most-known drag queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race, will host an exclusive dance class for all TAIMI users who are ready to join and the event.
“Please join me, as I’ve teamed up with TAIMI Talks livestream, from my dance studio where I’ll be sharing TikTok choreography, my passion for dance, answering questions and tons of fun”, says Alyssa.
A celebrity Hollywood trainer, successful model, and TV personality, Jason Wimberly, will share a few of his secrets and show some exercises you can do at home that will keep your body and mind healthy and full of energy.
“I’m excited to join TAIMI Talks September 13th because I know we all need to be moving our bodies a lot more than we are these days, so I’m ready to bring you some sweaty fun! Fitness for me is really about loving ourselves as we are, but working to build a better us tomorrow, and that is in perfect alignment with the TAIMI brand. Get ready to jump, squat, and maybe twerk with me live on the TAIMI app”, says Jason.
TAIMI Talks are also going to highlight some serious topics that might be uncomfortable to discuss, but that need covering nonetheless. Chris Mosier, the first trans athlete to join the U.S. National Olympic team and a transgender rights advocate, will share his point of view on the American legislation system and the need to make it more inclusive. He will also address the critical need to shape the positive cultural perceptions of trans people across the world.
“I’m excited to be a part of TAIMI Talks to create space for conversations that need to be happening in our community right now. I hope to create a space to empower people to truly be themselves and see others for who they are”, says Chris.
Blair Imani, a writer, mental health advocate, and historian living at the intersections of Black, Queer, and Muslim identity, will talk about human rights and equality, supporting TAIMI’s mission of battling homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia, and helping more people become LGBTQ+ allies.
Monique Heart, another well-known drag queen from RuPaul’s Drag Race, will hold an emotional and passionate conversation with TAIMI users, talking about expressing your feelings and living a life full of love both for yourself and everyone around you.
And finally, Ts Madison, a transgender woman of color and an equal rights activist, will host an exclusive cooking lesson, sharing her favorite recipes and chatting with the viewers.
Alex Pasykov, TAIMI Founder and an outspoken LGBTQ+ ally, says TAIMI Talks are a reflection of the evolution TAIMI has undergone in the last two years. According to Alex, the event is another logical step in the platform’s mission to create and sustain a safe place for everybody to express and accept themselves.
“TAIMI Talks are all about connecting people during these tremendously difficult times,” says Pasykov. “We are truly excited to see so much LGBTQ+ talent join us and spread the message of love and equality. It is important to continue educating people while also providing entertaining content to our users! TAIMI Talks have been a dream of mine for a while now, and I am really excited to see this event unfold!”
An essential mission of TAIMI Talks is not only to raise awareness about LGBTQ+ issues — but also to educate people that are not part of the community and tell them how to become an ally.
The flagship live streaming series will run throughout the weekend of September 12–13 and will be available to all the users of TAIMI — the world’s largest LGBTQ+ platform that features a social network and dating app.
