  • Tina and Renee Dixson have been together for a decade now, not only as a couple but partners in everything they do. When Renee was 21, she established the first in the region LGBTIQ human rights organisation that was providing psychosocial, medical and legal support to the LGBTIQ community. One of the achievements of her organisation was presentation of a CEDAW (Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination against Women) shadow report on the human rights violations of LBT women in the UN which resulted in historic recommendations for their state. Unfortunately, political landscape and visibility of their work at that time, drove them to seek protection. Driven by the desire to support women like them, Tina and Renee started a Queer Sisterhood Project - a peer run & peer support group for queer refugee women. The group meets every 6-8 weeks on the premises of Twenty10 incorporating GLCS NSW in Sydney.
