From the moment I became the President of the Collingwood Football Club on my 34th birthday back in 1998, my sole motivation was to heal, unite, inspire and drive a new social conscience, not just into this club, but sport and the community in general and build an organisation that would be a place for opportunity for all people.
Back then, Victoria Park was falling down around us. On the last weekend, just passed, it looked magnificent, as our AFL Women’s team played amazing football to win on Gay Pride Weekend.
