To change the world for the better is an always-present theme in my life.
Be it through work or through activism. I have studied theology, library science and IT systems management. Since I undertook a gender transition I have always been trans-active. Starting with a self-help group and going on with (co-) founding local or national organisations for trans rights.
Since five years I proudly serve on the Steering Committee of Transgender Europe and I am part of the ICD reform expert group that GATE convocated. With contributions to trans medical conferences and (LGB)T regional and global meetings, I am a well-known activist in the global theatre.
For three years I have had my own office in human rights education for trans and intersex rights and now I am mostly active in trans health advocacy on the national level in the Netherlands, where I live.
