Transgender woman Starlady explains why she moved to the desert six years ago

The transgender woman who grew up identifying as a gay man says she has never felt more like herself than with the world’s most ancient people in outback Australia.
The Queen of the Desert first started working with young people in indigenous communities in 2000 but moved to the desert permanently six years ago.
She says she spends her time working with youth, focusing on LGBTI issues and working with transgender girls and boys who would otherwise have no access to support services of any kind.
“But they still like to look good. To encourage their creative side, Starlady offers hairdressing and fashion workshops. She says the young people she works with love it.
“Bright colours like red, pink, orange, they already existed. I just helped develop their style. That’s been really exciting. They’ve got a really unique and edgy style that we don’t see anywhere else.”
