I’m Emma and I am a member of both the New Wave Rainbow Pride group and New Wave Leongatha.
I’m part of the LGBTIQA+ community and have been since I was 16. I’m proud to be part of that community and I’m proud to be openly bisexual.
1. Why did you join New Wave?
I joined New Wave so I could help people speak up for their rights and help them have a voice. I found out about New Wave through Dean Dadson from SARU, who came down to Leongatha and spoke at Yooralla about New Wave.
2. When did you join New Wave?
3. Why is Self-Advocacy important to you?
So I have a voice.
So I can share my opinions and people can hear what I have to say.
4. What do you like to do on the weekend and in your free time?
- Umpire Netball
- Go to Melbourne
- Hang out with friends
- Spend time with family
Live your life to the fullest and don’t let anyone tell you different.
