She received her PhD in Psychology from the University of Brighton and this was titled ‘Being a Queer and/or Trans Person of Colour in the UK: Psychology, Intersectionality and Subjectivity.’ She has previously worked in a community development and activist capacity on issues of sexual health with young people and Black Asian Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities and on issues facing her local community such as police harassment and gender and sexual diversity.
