In this interview, Ryan & I are incredibly honored to travel to Carlton to interview Brenda Appleton. In 2015, Brenda was appointed as co-chair of the Victorian Government’s LGBTI Taskforce. In 2016 she was appointed to the Victorian Mental Health Expert Taskforce. In 2017 Brenda was inducted into the Victorian Honour Roll of Women. In 2018, Brenda received a Victoria Senior of the Year Award. In 2019 Brenda was awarded an Order of Australia Medal. Today Brenda talks incredibly openly with us about her love of art, theatre, bridge, sustainable living, and co-housing. She also shares her gender journey over the last 20 years with us. She speaks of giving family time to catch up to gender affirmation, how community services can better meet the needs of trans and gender diverse youth, the importance of end of life planning for transgender people, and providing hope for those that are coming behind.
