Korra Koperu is Māori and Moriori whakawāhine. They have been advocating for TGNB youth since they were 13 and have had to navigate through legal barriers and discrimination to be the person they are today. Korra is passionate about intersectionality and collaborating with QTIPOC young people to ensure that we all have a place at the table and we are represented, heard and seen in conversations that we are often disproportionally excluded from. Korra was instrumental in creating events like Whittlesea’s first Rainbow Summit, Dance The Rainbow (disco), and has created training videos like The Rainbow Film Project and Youth Against Risky Drinking campaign.
Korra is the Peer Youth Leader for (in)visible and creates and facilitates events for LGBTQIA+ youth. In this role, she hopes to chisel out space for young people to advocate for change. Outside of Korra’s roles, she is obsessed with makeup, sociology and video games.
