This Monday Mocha is a little closer to home. Literally. When I was in my early to late teens and growing in self awareness and learning about myself, it wasn’t just Queer As Folk that shone some light on the parts of me that I darkened. I used to hide underneath the covers reading LGBT magazines and newspapers. LOTL was one of those publications – headed up by Silke Bader – ranked the eight most powerful lesbian in the world by CLEO. A powerhouse publisher, event planner and equality advocate here in Australia, it’s an honour to have a mocha with yet another person who’s indirectly had some influence in shaping who I was today.
“When friendships are no longer give and take, when it’s heading only in one direction, you realise who you can turn to for support, and who you can give support to.”
