Turning Fear Into Understanding – Transgender & Gender Diversity Consultant & Trans Awareness Training & Diversity Speaker in Sydney
My name is Katherine Wolfgramme, I am a nationally recognised Trans Advocate, award winning Gender Diversity Consultant and Trans Awareness Trainer. I am also a prominent, well respected transgender woman, and a loved member of Sydney’s Gay Community
I have changed law in one country and changed language in another.
I transitioned 30 years ago. Through my lifetime I have been a trans child, a trans youth, a trans adult, and now I find myself a trans elder and role model and community leader.
In three decades there have been great changes for the transgender population in Australia, especially in regard to anti-discrimination and employment equality.
As more trans people are able to more openly access education, government services, and general employment much confusion has arisen around pronouns, etiquette and cultural safety.
Through my workshops and consulting I aim to broaden knowledge and help create safe environments within corporations through the education of employers, management, HR departments and key stakeholders
My vision is to help create a language of greater understanding to help facilitate cultural safety for trans people at work, at school, and in care – To help reduce transphobia towards all transgender people.
Thank you Katherine Wolfgramme for being our keynote speaker today for our Wear it Purple Day event. Katherine is a renowned Trans and gender diversity educator and amongst many important messages she reminded us that the Trans community are not asking for special treatment, just a fair go, and that if we treat people as human beings it is amazing what we can achieve together.

Thank you so much for sharing your stories with Clifford Chance on IDAHOBIT Day and for educating us on what the legal fraternity can do to help the trans community.
“I would like to say what a beautiful impression I got from you as a person and as someone who is selflessly putting themselves in the service of people who are just beginning their journey. This world really, really needs beautiful people like you so please never stop what you are doing.”
Katherine does everything with grace, courage, wit and clarity. I unreservedly recommend her to anyone seeking guidance on how to be an ally to the trans and wider LGBTQI communities.

Thank you so much for coming and speaking to us today. It was a really wonderful opportunity for our staff to hear your story, and learn about the difficulties the transgender community still faces. The feedback we have received so far has been overwhelmingly positive.
I just love the energy you bring and how passionate you are with what you are doing and continue to do within the Rainbow Community. Education is powerful. Hope to see you again soon.
Katherine is one of Australia’s foremost speakers on transgender lives and rights, with extensive knowledge of the lives experiences of transgender people. At a time when LGBTQI issues are in the spotlight and there’s new awareness of gender diversity, Katherine can be a wonderful, warm, knowledgeable and welcoming guide to any organisation willing to learn more about transgender people. She’s a great addition to any panel or project about diversity. We were very proud and happy to work with her during Mardi Gras 2017 and 2018. I don’t hesitate to recommend Katherine and I am happy to be contacted for any further information
