Ezra, Fundraising Relationships Coordinator
Ezra (they/them) is a neurodiverse, non-binary, queer Jewish Kiwi with lived experience of a disability, and a background in LGBTQIA+ volunteering, communications and public service. They are also a self-described nerd, unabashed people-person and obsessive dog parent.
Having first fallen into LGBTQIA+ volunteering by accident, Ezra has spent most of their professional career moonlighting as an advocate for intersectional queer diversity and inclusion, and is thrilled to be making the leap to a full-time career.
Ezra joined the Minus18 family in January of 2021 as the Fundraising Relationships Coordinator. Here, they work with businesses, schools, community groups and members of the public to support fundraising activities. Ezra is particularly passionate about working with allies and the broader community to raise awareness, build bridges and bring about change in the lives of LGBTQIA+ youth all across Australia.
Ezra previously worked in the public service sector, primarily in education, as well as in the hospitality industry. Ezra continues to volunteer in their spare time as the Chief Marketing Officer for Out for Australia. In their downtime, they can usually be found playing computer games, cooking up a feast, or playing tug-of-war with the dog.
