I’m a Masters student studying Writing, Editing, and Publishing (WEP) at the University of Queensland, as well as a student partner with the Young & Emerging Publishers Network (YEP Australia). I write for FROOTY Magazine and QNews Magazine, and have written for Queer Radio and 4ZZZ, PASTEL Magazine, and GULP! Fiction. I also publish Queer!Content Comix & Zines: an indie publication with a focus on queer media and identity. I perform community by volunteering with The Wendybird, Brisbane Queer Film Festival, and Brisbane Writers Festival, and by facilitating workshops and events that introduce people to indie publishing and queer identity in media.


But that’s all gas. I prefer to think of myself as a ‘dedicated consumer of queer media’ before anything else (fancy words for ‘big, gay nerd’), and recognise that a large part of my identity exists as part of a community. Much of what I do is to witness as many beautiful, queer stories as I can, and support queer content producers around the world.

The READ ME Queer Zine Library:

This baby’s a labor of love: my private collection of queer indie comics and zines displayed in an old suitcase I decked out with shelves. It holds both domestic and international titles from queer creatives – many of which are now out of print. As an added bonus there’s me, ya boi, ready to receive folk and guide them to narratives that speak to them. You can request to see READ ME at your next event by stopping by the contact page and sending me a request.
