Lexie Matheson is a Senior Lecturer and Academic Equity Leader at Auckland University of Technology. She was born in the pouring rain at the 1998 Hero Parade and will celebrate her 20th tranniversary during Pride 2018.
In the intervening years she’s graduated with a master’s degree, begun the PhD journey, been beaten up, arrested (more than once), married Cushla, co-parented the wonderful Finn, re-established relationships broken by transition, lost a few others. She was a founder member of the Pride Board, left and came back, graded to black belt, was appointed to the Auckland Council Rainbow Communities Advisory Panel, represented NZ at karate in 2017, and she’s been made an Officer of the NZ Order of Merit (ONZM) for services to education, the performing arts and LGBTQI+ rights.
Lexie identifies as whakawahine takatāpui, is a social justice activist and unashamedly as far left in her politics as it’s humanly possible to go. She runs her life on the principles of tika, pono, aroha, and is most likely to be heard saying “let’s do the mahi and make this work.”
