Out For Australia announce 30 Under 30 LGBTIQ+ role models

Out For Australia have announced the winners of their inaugural 30 Under 30 awards, recognising the next generation of young Australian LGBTIQ+ role models.

The winners were decided by selection panel, seeking individuals who demonstrated tangible contributions to bettering the lives of LGBTIQ+ people in Australia, success in their respective career and living the qualities of a good role model; “authenticity, courage and resilience.”

The panel included Out For Australia’s Communications Manager Vas Punyane, author Paige Wilcox, Clayton Utz’s Luke Ferness, and BCG’s Stephanie White and Anna Green.

Four Western Australians were named among the winners – Georgia Foulkes-Taylor, Mackenzie Godson, Tegan Harrington and Thomas Drake-Brockman.

Other winners include Victorian performer Mama Alto, and former WA activist and Students for Marriage Equality founder Oscar Kaspi-Crutchett.

The winners will be recognised in a ceremony on September 25th, with speeches from Jordan Raskopoulos and Dr Kerryn Phelps.
