Interviews

Activism & community

  • I am one of the University of Sydney’s SRC Disabilities Officebearers for 2018.
  • I was the Sydney site coordinator for the Autistic Self Advocacy Network’s Disability Day of Mourning Vigil in 2017 and 2018.
  • In 2017 I organised a vigil/community forum for the first anniversary of the Sagamihara massacre, and helped to organise a CRIPS AGAINST THE CAMPS protest in support of the refugees on Manus Island.
  • I was one of the organisers of the University of Sydney’s 2017 Rad Sex and Consent Week.
  • 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.
