I live in Leipzig, am non-binary/trans* and have been a research assistant at the Institute of Sociology at the University of Jena since 2012. In addition to my academic activities in queer and gender studies, I have been working pedagogically and activistically in queer_feminist contexts since my studies (including projects on trans*inter*non-binary topics, workshops and further education).
For more than ten years I have been leading exclusively relational anarchist-polyamorous relationships and since then I have been intensively dealing with relationship management, communication in relationships and the loving, appreciative handling in relationship constellations with more than two people. The continuous exchange with other queer polyamorous people is at least as helpful as my training as a coach in educational couple and individual counselling during my studies.
