Isabelle is representing young people on the panel discussion ‘Raising our voice: advocacy and owning future change’ during this years conference alongside Michelle Telfer and Cristyn Davies.
Isabelle first told her story on ABC’s groundbreaking Four Corners program ‘Being Me’. The story had a profound impact and began a wider public discussion about transgender children and the legal obstacles they face. Isabelle spoke at Parliament House, Canberra in 2016 about her experiences, her fears around the Family Court process and her plea for understanding and action. She also attended a Parliamentary sitting in Canberra with their local member, Cathy McGowan to highlight these issues. Isabelle is now in year 10 and still enjoys advocating for trans and gender diverse rights. Isabelle speaks eloquently and from the heart about the impact of discrimination as well as the impact of the right support at the right time.
