Remember Charlotte from Sex And The City? She had a lot to say. But then she kind of didn’t.
Real life actress who plays her, though – Kristin Davis – does indeed have much to say on pertinent issues and will demonstrate this when she takes part in the 2016 Queer Thinking line-up during the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras festival period.
Kristin is actually a high-profile supporter of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and, in the case of Queer Thinking, will be discussing issues important to LGBTQI people and communities, both at home in Australia and abroad.
Kristin will appear on a panel or two during the Queer Thinking schedule.
