Janet Carter

Janet Carter is a lifelong queer activist. She came out in 1985, at the age of 19, when AIDS deaths still numbered in their hundreds. She has been active in the queer community for more than 25 years, serving on early Pride committees here in Perth, organising queer conferences and exhibitions, and supporting WAAC’s youth suicide project in the mid-90s. In the late 90s, she moved to Sydney, where she worked with Pride, Leather Pride, Sydney 2002 Gay Games, and the Sydney Gay + Lesbian Mardi Gras. These days, she works as an artist and activist, mentoring young queer folk. She identifies as a gender queer butch leather dyke.
