Trans Activist Nadine Stransen Found Dead

Artist and former transgender activist Nadine Stransen has been found dead in her Woolloomooloo apartment.

Stransen was a member of the Transgender Liberation Coalition and was instrumental in introducing legislation for the inclusion of transgender people and their partners, into both NSW and Commonwealth anti-discrimination law.

Stransen worked with lobbyist Andy Griffin and Greens M.L.C. Ian Cohen and Labor Deputy Premier Andrew Refshauge to reintroduce the Transgender Anti-Discrimination and other Acts Amendment Bill of 1996.
