Matika Little, First Nations and community engagement officer talking about how the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras has appointed her the first nations and community engagement officer. In this brand new role Matika will lead community consultation to ensure LGBTQI+ First Nations voices from around the region are heard and reflected in the work of Mardi Gras. Matika’s role is just another initiative implemented by Mardi Gras in recent years to strengthen the representation for LGBTQI+ First Nations voices within its activities.
