Gd_Girl (Good Girl, they/them) is a filipino-bred, globally raised non-binary residing in Bergen. They recently started working for FRI Vestland but have several years experience in voluntary advocacy work, contributing to studies, and facilitating gatherings to humanize BDSM. As a member of SM Bergen since 2016, they’re immensely passionate about representation, diversity, inclusivity, and equity

Their contribution to Kinkferansen 2023 is titled “Side effects of (un)healthy BDSM”. It covers how BDSM was the catalyst to their transformed life since moving to Norway, coming from a conservative culture, being a POC and TCI, and discovering their authentic self whilst stumbling, breaking, mending and building themselves up again along the way
