Presenting: All Things Queer
I am a passionate human rights advocate, with a strong belief in inclusion and an adorable little brown dog for keeping it real. My background is in psychology and human rights, and most recently I have been doing social change and advocacy work with people at risk of social exclusion. I have ongoing involvement with a number of not-for-profits, holding board and steering committee positions.
At the moment (and for the foreseeable future), I’m working on a PhD exploring the experiences of non-monosexual / non-binary individuals in the context of recognition in Australia.
How did you become involved in the station?
After coming into the studio a few times for interviews, it was suggested I try my hand at the other side of the desk.

What is the best thing about being involved in the station?
It’s fab to be involved in the only queer radio show in Perth, and generally really lovely to feel connected with the local music scene.
What is the strangest thing that has happened to you at RTRFM?
Around 3am, I started making up words on my very first Up Late shift.
If you could present a show other than your own, which would it be and why?
Nostalgia – nothing can get me dancing quite like the classics!
What do you do in real life?
I’ll let you know when I get there…
