 Samy Nour Younes Biography

Samy Nour Younes Figaredo is a proud multi-hyphenate: Lebanese-American, Puerto Rican, actor, activist, aerialist, consultant, pianist, public speaker, puppeteer, singer, and more. Samy has extensive experience speaking to organizations, providing workshops to groups, and facilitating panels on the following topics:

  • Discrimination in employment and health care
  • The “coming out” story, and advocating for familial support and acceptance
  • The history of LGBTQ+ communities, especially within the United States
  • LGBTQ+ bias crimes, particularly within the transgender community
  • Transgender representation and influence of the media
  • Legislative protections for transgender people

Some of the organizations and businesses that have hired Samy include the Hetrick-Martin Institute, the Environmental Protection Agency, eBay, and the Ban Ki-moon Centre for Global Citizens.

Samy has also co-developed medical simulations for transgender patients in their work as a Standardized Patient. Schools who have hired Samy in this capacity include Johns Hopkins University, the University of Maryland Baltimore, Montgomery College, and Anne Arundel Community College.

A noted social media influencer, Samy has partnered with dozens of organizations and brands to promote Pride, acceptance, and awareness of LGBTQ+ issues, including:

  • Center for Disease Control
  • Philadelphia Department of Health
  • Gilead Sciences
  • JUST Water
  • NowThis (in partnership with Xfinity)

Finally, Samy is available as a consultant on trans-inclusive policies and media representation, and available to facilitate panels on LGBTQ+ issues. In 2019 alone, they served as script consultant on two musicals that were produced at New York Musical Festival.

Online, Samy is best known for being a TED resident in the fall of 2019, where they gave a TED talk on the importance of transgender history. Their talk went live in March 2019 (just days before the Transgender Day of Remembrance) and has since been viewed over 1.6 million times. Later that year, Samy produced and debuted their first solo show, "everyday," at The Tank in New York City.

In all their endeavors, Samy aims to highlight the diversity of the trans experience: not just in their struggles, but also in their triumphs.
