We’re excited to announce a panel discussion and Q&A centring queer women of colour:
Angie Kocsisek (she/her)
Angie is a lesbian woman of colour living and working on Darug Land. She works at ACON as a Home-Based Care Coordinator supporting older LGBT+ folk. Her previous experiences include working in the intersections of drug and alcohol and domestic and family violence spaces. She has a huge passion for honoring and authentically representing the histories and stories of both biological and logical families and communities.
Rani Holland (she/her)
Rani is a multi-gender attracted woman of colour living and working on Awabakal Land. She works at ACON as a Community Health Promotion Officer supporting better health outcomes for regional community. She is also a first-generation Indian immigrant and a writer who is passionate about advocating for diversity and inclusion and elevating the stories of people of colour, diverse sexualities and genders.
Bexx Djentuh (she/her)
Having started out as a events producer in Aotearoa facilitating Maori/Pasifika queer events, Bexx has reignited her passion for new and inviting spaces in Naarm. Creating club nights headlining QTIPOC/BIPOC artists, she also has also worked alongside collectives that fostered discussion around representation in the music world. Getting a bit older (lol), she has now switched her 9pm-3am job to work 3pm-9pm supporting young LGBTQIA+ & QTIPOC folk find connection to community through (in)visible.
Elsa Tuet-Rosenberg (she/her)
Elsa (she/her) is a queer, Jewish and Chinese educator, facilitator, activist and performer. She is the co-founder of Hue, an antiracism & social justice organisation and is a board member and co-chair of the QTIPOC committee at Switchboard. In 2020 she was awarded one of Out for Australia’s 30 under 30, for LGBTQIA+ role models and leaders.
Monique is currently a Senior Advisor in Intersectional Practice at Our Watch. In her previous roles she has worked as a facilitator and educator at the Multicultural Centre for Women’s Health, WIRE Women’s Information & Referral Exchange and Switchboard Victoria. Much of her work has involved facilitating conversations around primary prevention, family violence and intersectionality. She is passionate about prison abolition and transformative justice.
We look forward to seeing you again at this very special event.
