Writer, Editor and Teacher

I have come to believe over and over again that what is most important to me 
must be spoken, made verbal and shared, even at the risk of having it bruised or misunderstood.

What AFL’s inaugural Pride Game means to me as a queer woman

I recently wrote an article for Daily Life about the inaugural Pride Game between St Kilda and the Sydney Swans. The article is about my experiences with sport when I was growing up as a queer woman, as well as the AFL’s links to homophobia, racism and misogyny.

I really enjoyed the Pride Game, and in many ways, it challenged my longstanding beliefs about AFL and homophobia. I now believe that things can, and will, change. However, some aspects of the game still bothered me. I plan to write an update about my experience at the game shortly.

National Young Writers’ Festival

I was fortunate to be selected as an artist for the 2015 National Young Writers’ Festival. I had an incredible time discussing being a queer writer and a memoirist with many talented writers, and the opportunity to attend other panels and workshops. The Sydney Morning Herald wrote a feature article about our ‘Coming of Queerness’ panel, which you can read here. NYWF’s Press Room blogger Bridget Lutherborrow reviewed both events (Coming of Queerness and It’s All in the Family).
