Navigating Gender & Identity With Zoe Terakes

Zoe Terakes is 21 and they identify as non-binary and trans masculine. You would have seen Zoe on your screens or on the stage, maybe in the ABC’s Janet King, Wentworth, or more recently in 9 Perfect Strangers. You may have even caught their award-winning performance in View From A Bridge.

Zoe has come out a number of times for a number of different reasons, and they have some advice for parents whose children give them the gift of vulnerability, and honesty. They join Mia now to talk about it...


With thanks to Zoe Terakes
