“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.”
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.
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.

Katherine was our keynote speaker for our online Wear it Purple Day event in 2021. She is a remarkable speaker, who told her story with a mix of humour, passion and sadness. It was a privilege to hear her journey, from the realisation of 'not being a girl' at four years old, to her proud transgender advocacy today. She is an incredibly real and inspiring woman. Katherine - Thank you for sharing your journey with us.
John Holland Group
It was our absolute pleasure having you join us and inspiring to hear your fascinating story.
A big thanks to you on behalf of the ING Gala Network.
We really appreciate you and Christine Forster taking the time out of your day to help us inform our staff about our community.
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.

You were poised, gentle and measured in all you had to say - such a thoughtful way tp approach the topic. You could be a teacher!

I am not sure if you remember me from Citi’s Wear it Purple event; however, I am the executive sponsor of the Pride Network. I was relying the event to a personal friend and impact you had on both myself and the team
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

You took me on a journey that’s for sure, and I had various emotions during your talk, I felt sad, happy, joyous, relieved amongst other feelings and more importantly at the end of it a better understanding.

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.
Thank you so much for coming to SCEGGS and sharing your thoughts on feminism and gender issues with such generosity and grace.
You’re a fantastic role model for our young women
Thanks for coming down to Lendlease. I’ve had lots of wonderful positive feedback from the people who attended and how you all got the balance right between creating understanding and being entertaining. Well done.
As a member of the PRIDE working group at J.P. Morgan, we were lucky enough to have Katherine speak to us about her journey as a courageous trans women. Hearing Katherine share her personal experiences, the prejudices that she has faced and her many notable accomplishments, we were both educated and inspired. We learned about how to be a more supportive ally, and how to better understand gender identity. Listening to Katherine's personal story was an absolute privilege.
You were fabulous my darling. Thank you for coming to my school and being so amazing. The students and teachers alike loved it!
Sydney Secondary School - Black Wattle Bay Campus
