Bold and bright, these festooned hoops were literally statement earrings - bedecked with rainbow tassels and lettered beads that spelled out: “Equality”, “Sia”, “StandUp” and “Love”.
While they aren’t available (yet… here’s hoping), you can find more of their personalised pieces at edenboroughevans.com
While her earring game is strong, that’s not why Greene was tapped to be the stand-in Sia.
Last year, Greene founded not-for-profit organisation Stand Up Events. “We fight sexual and gender discrimination, mainly in homophobia, in sport,” she explains. “We run programs in junior sporting codes to eradicate homophobic behaviour, and things like our fun run Move in May in support of IDAHOT (International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia).” Marriage Equality, she says, is a “no-brainer. We just need to make this happen.”
Greene comes from a sport-mad family.
“My grandfather Frank Sedgman won 22 tennis grand slams. My dad is in the Hawthorn Hall of Fame.” she says. “I have two older brothers: one also played AFL. The other, who is gay and an incredible athlete as well, removed himself from the sporting world because of how exclusive it is. Both brothers in general were treated very differently, which was quite hard to watch growing up.”
