It’s been a lot to take in, but I have been very excited to see the important conversations happening as a response. I will be back with more writing soon, but wanted to just welcome those of you who are finding your way here as a result of all the media attention. Subscribe to my newsletter to keep up to date on this case and the other work that I am up to.

I also want to give a huge thanks to barbara findlay qc, and Raquel at barbara’s office. This work wouldn’t be possible without the support of the legal team. Together we are able to take the beliefs we share about gender to the systems that are in need of updates and create meaningful change. Thank barbara and Raquel.

And huge thanks to my home team too- queer family and community working together to reimagine and create the world we are ready to live in.

If you are finding the whole vocabulary component of this story confusing and need clarification on terms like gender, sex, trans, intersex, transgender, gender identity + expression please check this glossary of terms on the Gender Free ID Coalition website.
