Carers Victoria staff undertook “Intersex for Allies” training with Tony in May, as part of our preparation for the Rainbow Tick accreditation. Staff provided overwhelmingly positive feedback, and stated a significant increase in knowledge after the 3 hour presentation. Some of the written comments from staff are below.

“Tony was fantastic in explaining what it is to be intersex”

“Very informative, I have started to gain insight into source of the problems encountered by someone who is intersex. Interested in reading the Darlington Statement”

“Wow, I’m totally blown away by Tony’s authenticity. And inspired by it”

“Tony was an excellent presenter. Very engaging. It felt like one big conversation with a friend. Thank you for sharing Tony”

“Thank you Tony, it has been such an eye opener. Thank you again for sharing your experience and making us feel comfortable”
