QAMH Members are invited to join us for our Online Members Forum. During this forum we will be joined by transgender womxn Cloé Sophia (she/her/hers).
Cloé Sophia offers a unique perspective the situation of the Trans and Gender Diverse community. She has insights as to why there is a need to ‘punch up’ and be apart of the solution for policy reform and how you can help.
Cloé also offers a trans perspective on how to support and include gender diverse people. A perspective you will only hear from a trans organisation/person of lived experience working outside an lgbtiq+ government-funded standpoint.
And finally Cloé shares a perspective on the ‘The bright future ahead for all of us in normalising gender expression. True Gender Equality’.
Cloé is first and foremost a proudly queer woman and a person who has a lived experience of anxiety, depression, homelessness and physical disability.
Cloé is a creative, a maker, a natural problem solver. She uses her forced dislocation from society because of her non-normative experiences to become an advocate and change-maker, seeking to continually learn.
Her project-based career has covered such diverse things as: Electronics engineering, Photography, Contemporary Dance, Support Work, Youth Work, Festival Production, Sexology, Picture Hanging, Acting, Film making and Advocacy.
Cloé is dedicated to dismantling rhetoric, metabolising stigma, disseminating knowledge and removing shame to create a more open, joyous, safer and inclusive space for everyone to express their full humanity.
