Georgina is looking forward to speak at the World Outgames Conference and emphasise ‘the love of freedom – freedom to love’ headline. Georgina says: “The freedoms some of us enjoy are yet to be realized for many.

We of the LGBT community must show Leadership!! Pool our collective experience and resource to offer practical pathways that can change lives and enrich nations”.
