  • I have marched in & volunteered on the Sydney Mardi Gras parade route and at various marriage equality, student anti-cuts protest rallies &tc.
  • I was to my knowledge the first University of Sydney student with a legal X gender marker, and spent far too much time badgering them about it until they changed their bureaucratic & online systems to allow for X markers and for Mx as a title. I am still cheerfully bothering them about making the updates consistent across all platforms. I was also instrumental in the Administrative Appeals Tribunal updating their systems to include X markers and Mx as a title. I am still working on the rest of Australian medicolegal infrastructure.
