Jeremy founded VAPN (Virgin Australia Pride Network) which provides support, understanding and community to LGBTI+ members of VA, their family and their friends. I work with Jeremy on VAPN and through VAPN we have helped reconnect families struggling with Queer Identity, we have helped provide accommodation alternatives to a trans teenager who was kicked out of home. We have inspired. We have provided safety and understanding and it will only get bigger from here. and I guess... the most emotional reason... is through VAPN we have saved a life. Without Jeremy, none of these things would have been possible.
