Asian & LGBTQ+: Lived Experiences

This Lunar New Year, join us to mark the celebration as we host a panel inviting Asian LGBTQ+ people to share their stories and experiences. Whether it's celebrating the holiday, experiences growing up, or exploring the intersections between being Asian and LGBTQ+, this panel seeks to share these stories and educate others. 

We'll explore topics like the challenges facing the Asian diaspora, the response in Asian families to being LGBTQ+, and how Asian LGBTQ+ people have lived during the pandemic. 

Join us on the 1st of February to celebrate the new Lunar Year, and learn about being Asian and LGBTQ+.

    Product Specialist
    Macquarie Asset Management
    I am a Product Specialist in the Client Solutions Group within Macquarie Asset Management, focusing on fundraising, structuring and client servicing for the Private Credit business. I also sit on the steering committee of Macquarie’s Pride employee network group in EMEA. I joined Macquarie after gaining a Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Laws from The University of Sydney, as part of the 2017 Graduate Programme in Sydney, Australia. I began my career in Macquarie in the Specialist Investments team in Sydney, which involved structuring and managing a range of tailored investment solutions. Following this, I worked in the Fund Finance team based in New York, which specialises in lending to private equity funds, private credit funds, real estate funds and fund of funds. I joined Macquarie Pride EMEA as a result of my aim to help make the lives of future generations of LGBT+ individuals better, which was something the previous generation has helped me with. Outside of work, I am a keen tennis player, I like to learn languages and would not mind taking the spotlight in karaoke.
