I am humbled and honoured to be included in the Outstanding 50 LGBTI+ Leaders 2020 Report by Deloittes, particularly because of the extraordinary leaders who have been included from so many fields and the encouragement it provides for others. It is just wonderful to see the range of amazing people and their work. I am not least thankful for this recognition of both the transgender community locally and nationally and also affirming people of faith, not least Equal Voices, whom my inclusion signifies and celebrates. It is amazing that there are indeed two Anglican priests included, with myself and my friend Fr Stuart Soley from St Mark's Fitzroy in Melbourne - a hopeful sign of some progress and positive future in our sadly contested faith spaces.
