See Another Side of Me!

For those of you who haven't known me for very long, you might not know that as well as writing, I am a huge advocate for LGBTQ+ rights, and work for RainbowYOUTH in Auckland, New Zealand.

We were very lucky to be featured in a series of videos for LGBT week on RE: over on Facebook and the interview turned out so well! A huge thank you to Sieska Verdonk, for your interesting questions, your curious nature, and an all-round great experience!

I was also lucky enough to be asked to give an interview for their upcoming Trans Week series, which is due out in a month or so. This is the first time I've been able to share my experiences this way, and it is so special and so wonderful that this is available to our community through an organization that is run by young people in New Zealand.

Thanks, RE: for all your hard work, we look forward to working with you again!

If you'd like to help out RainbowYOUTH, go to the website and drop us a line or a donation - we would love the help!
