Legacies

1-In 1997 becoming the first transgender woman in Fiji to legally obtain a female name on all legal documentation including my birth certificate and passport.

2-In 2017 successfully taking legal action against all business using the transphobic slang “Tranny” publicly for financial gain in NSW and ACT, all other states followed suit thus influencing language in Australia.

3-Successfully taking legal action by changing a damaging headline by Nationwide News’ The Australian newspaper with an editorial note acknowledging the previous headline may have been damaging with a guaranteed change of the way trans-related headlines will be delivered in the future after conciliation before The Anti-Discrimination Board in 2021.

3-Successfully producing and managing many inaugural trans events in Australia, always in the hope of empowering transgender people and educating the broader community, including:

  • Transgender Day of Remembrance Candlelight Vigil at Taylor Square in Sydney 2016, for the first time inviting all the LGBTI Community to join us, thus creating the first Official Trans related event on the LGBTI Calendar in Sydney.
  • The Inaugural Trans Stories – A 2017 Sydney Pride Festival Event, educating the broader public about what it is to be trans
  • How to Transition Successfully in Business – A 2016 Sydney Pride Festival Event.
  • Katherine Wolfgramme Gender Diversity Consultancy – The first self-employed transgender woman delivering trans awareness programmes commercially in Australia, services provided by cis gay people before this.
  • The Gender Whisperer – The first exclusively trans column in The Star Observer, Australia’s oldest and largest LGBTI Magazine, raising trans visibility across the medium.
  • Inaugural Trans Pride Ball 1996
