Our Meetings

GenderBridge's Committee meets the fourth Tuesday of every month at 7pm. We welcome visitors to our committee meetings.


Meet Our Committee Members

We are proud of our diverse committee. Our membership represents a diverse group of trans people and their allies, and our committee members have been carefully chosen to reflect this dynamic within the trans community. You can get to know us better by reading about us below, or simply drop by one of our social meetings. We would love to chat with you.


  Joey Macdonald - Chairperson
Joey recently graduated from Otago University with a Masters in Sociology, Gender Studies and Social Work. He is currently employed at OUTLine NZ, and also works in the mental health sector, educating clinicians about gender and sexual diversity. Joey is passionate about difference, social justice, and the need for communities that foster relationships based on mutual respect, rather than (only) shared identities. He hopes to build upon the valuable contributions of the previous committee members, and in particular, to continue the excellent work of the previous Chairperson.
