Danica now describes herself as Bi gender and discovered her sexuality whilst growing up in a remote town with a population of less than 400 people. Her first same sex relationship blossomed during her senior year of school but she was shortly outed and experiencing regular panic attacks. Together the pair escaped to Melbourne but as time goes by Danica felt terrified and bedridden, without a roof over her head, until a beginner course in yoga changed her life. Being able to practise and later teach yoga for twenty years improved Danica’s wellbeing and empowered others to feel good through through movement, tantra and dance. @ youtube @ LGBTI Yoga danicalani.com & Instagram & Facebook
Danica went on to create Kings of Joy, a performance group to support first time Drag Kings and has helped shape a bi-monthly event to celebrate the Trans and gender-diverse community. @ kings-of-joy
The story of how Lucretia – a transgender refugee living in Kakuma refugee camp Block 13 – found Queers of Joy on the internet and connected with them. Now Queers of Joy is running regular events to raise money to help the members of Block 13 fight for their freedom and to help them find asylum in a safe country.
