I have been a Canberra-based intersex educator and activist for the last eight years and joined Intersex Human Rights Australia (IHRA) as senior projects officer in August. After starting off in grassroots community education, I spent the last four years as intersex project coordinator for A Gender Agenda. I have been involved in policy development, building organisational capacity, running peer support programs, and developing resources and training from a lived experience perspective.
My background in science communication and in library and information services helps me bring a bright and sincere voice to my work. I believe that visibility and conversation are the right way forward for improving the circumstances of people with innate variations of sex characteristics in Australia.
