May 26th @ 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM (JST)
This is our last Virtual Lunch before taking a break for the summer. We are delighted to welcome Tiffany Rossdale as our member host for this exciting event. She has invited two guests that will share their stories with our members.
Maeve DuVally is a managing director in corporate communications at Goldman Sachs in New York, where she has worked for 18 years. Previous to that, she worked in communications at Merrill Lynch and as a journalist in Tokyo, Washington and New York. She spent ten years in Japan, including stints as an exchange student in Osaka, a government-sponsored English teacher in Kumamoto and English teacher, brokerage analyst and journalist in Tokyo. Since coming out as a transgender women in 2018, she speaks publicly about her experience; mentors other trans people; and, serves of the boards of several queer non-profits.
Nurul Darlene Illyana is a Singapore-born Australian transgender cabaret entertainer. Her transition was met with peaks and valleys since the 90’s with much perseverance, but once she arrived in Australia, her life altered to a world of endless possibilities. Her entertainment career soared from winning singing competitions, and getting gigs with recommendations from Australia’s iconic Carlotta & Christy McNicols. Her growth gave her the confidence and inspiration that led to her winning Best Costume Award at 2013 Mardi Gras. One other great experience that she wasn’t expected at all was being co-featured in a BBC Documentary about the transgender beauty pageant in Thailand. Singing in a 2 hour concert with a LGBTIQ Orchestral band was another one that will always have a very special place in her heart.
