21 Sep 2015
September 21 2015 | APB speaker Jeffrey Tambor won his first Emmy Award in the category of Lead Actor in a Comedy for his groundbreaking portrayal of “Maura Pfefferman” in the Amazon Prime hit series, Transparent. Last year, he took home his first-ever Golden Globe win for the role and, earlier this year, received a Critics Choice Award for his incredible acting.
His portrayal of a transgender parent has inspired countless others, including Caitlyn Jenner, who recently gave a trailblazing acceptance speech upon receiving the 2015 Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYs. Tambor’s moving and inspiring speech last night described the role as “life-changing,” dedicating the accomplishments to the transgender community with a message urging others to speak out and be comfortable with transitioning.
A gifted speaker, Tambor is sought after for his willingness to share personal stories with candor and humor. His inspiring “perform your life” presentations bring audiences through an eye-opening, emotional, hilarious journey of how to love life and reach one’s fullest potential. Determined to help listeners reconnect with their hopes and dreams, Tambor empowers us all to become catalysts for change.
