Georgie Stone. Who do you know that’s won a Medal of the Order of Australia at the age of 19? Not many, if any. Georgie is an Australian Actor, Transgender Rights Activist and an outright incredible individual. Just by virtue of being who she is, she changed history in Australia when at the age of 10, Georgie was the youngest person to receive hormone blockers in Australia which set a precedent that eventually changed the law that compelled transgender children and their families to apply to the Family Court of Australia to access stage one treatment in transitioning. Since then she has advocated for Transgender rights for children and beyond in ensuring rights, visibility and representation including requesting a role on the longest running and iconic television show in Australia, Neighbours, and securing it just a year later! Georgie is also a dear friend of mine and I feel truly grateful to have her not only as part of my “chosen” family in life but also my television family, where we have made history with groundbreaking storytelling. You’ll hear an articulate, incredibly intelligent and insightful woman in this one, I am forever learning with her as I believe you will too.
