My name is Jay Anderson; I'm a writer and editor, and, as corny—and perhaps as vague—as it sounds, I'd like to make a difference. I spent the majority of my life in Kalgoorlie—a red-dirt town full of miners who are seemingly, more often than not, too-pissed-to-piss-straight.
My name is Emery Wishart. I'm a young pre-service primary school teacher with a passion for supporting trans and gender diverse community development. I spent my adolescent years in country WA and want to share my experience of coming into my queer identity.
My name is Jordan Fletcher, and to quote 'Little Britain's' Daffyd Thomas, I am a gay. Moreover, I am a finance and economics student, hilariously mentally ill, and keeping it together enough for roughly 10 minutes of awkward anecdotes about growing up gay in the cultural oasis that is Kalgoorlie.
My name is Alex Watson, I have a passion for stories in all forms and I’m constantly looking for new subjects to expand my knowledge. I grew up in the sand and surf of Geraldton, it was there I discovered I was transgender, and where my own story begins.
I am Peehi Blake, I’m a supermarket deli queen most days and a self-taught makeup artist every other day. I’ve spent the last five years of my life in the mining town of Kalgoorlie and coming out to my friends and family has definitely been a wild ride.
My name is Josie Boland. I’m a 23-year-old gay woman. When signing up for this project I didn’t think I’d have a lot to say about my home-town, Kalgoorlie-Boulder, but holy moly guacamole, have I seen some shit.
