I proposed an idea to speak at Pycon FR in Pau, so I travelled domestically to speak. The event asked me to buy a ticket at full price, and I was not paid to speak. The event did not pay for my travel and accommodation. My employer paid all of my travel expenses, and I used my PTO to speak. It took me 2 days to prepare for my 25 minutes speaking slot, and I had a mostly good time. I'm a man who has been speaking for 5 years. This was a not for profit event. Also, I am vice-president of the organizing association
