Maddee Clark and I are in Overland today writing about whiteness, Masterchef and the demise of the ethnic aisle at Footscray Coles.

‘Trans people are under immense pressure to present a coherent and palatable origin story that helps cis people make sense of us – even when we are not seeking medical treatment, we are treated by laypeople as if presenting to them for diagnosis. We are supposed to be intelligent, untroubled, sympathetic and reassuring.’

For my first feature for ABC Life, I wrote about the difficulty of finding a sperm donor of colour in Australia, and the need for better racial literacy in the fertility industry.
