Feedback
Katherine is one of Australia’s foremost speakers on transgender lives and rights, with extensive knowledge of the lives experiences of transgender people. At a time when LGBTQI issues are in the spotlight and there’s new awareness of gender diversity, Katherine can be a wonderful, warm, knowledgeable and welcoming guide to any organisation willing to learn more about transgender people. She’s a great addition to any panel or project about diversity. We were very proud and happy to work with her during Mardi Gras 2017 and 2018. I don’t hesitate to recommend Katherine and I am happy to be contacted for any further information. Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras

Katherine was our keynote speaker for our online Wear it Purple Day event in 2021. She is a remarkable speaker, who told her story with a mix of humour, passion and sadness. It was a privilege to hear her journey, from the realisation of 'not being a girl' at four years old, to her proud transgender advocacy today. She is an incredibly real and inspiring woman. Katherine - Thank you for sharing your journey with us.

It was Sephora's priviledge to have Katherine speak as our guest of honour for our IWD celebrations yesterday. She has a powerful voice and her story and her experience captivated our teams across Australia and New Zealand. I would strongly recommend Katherine to companies and businesses that want to enhance the education journey for their teams around all aspects of diversity, equity and inclusion. She speaks movingly and with humor narrating a story that is at equal turns heart breaking and uplifting. Noone who listens to her could come away anything but richer for the experience , with a greater understanding of what it means to human and of the true power of community.
