About Me

My name is Max Appenroth and I am a trans activist and diversity consultant from Berlin. I am currently doing my doctorate at the Institute for Public Health of the Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin. In addition, I am currently doing an internship with the department "HIV/AIDS and other sexually and blood-borne diseases" at the Robert Koch Institute.

I am an independent consultant and offer my support in the area of Diversity Consulting. In many areas, diversity is still not taken into account. I am happy to help to make a contribution to change this and to work for more inclusion on a social and scientific level.
In addition, I am happy to support the process of finding financial and funding resources. Due to my long experience in both the application process and the evaluation of funding applications, I offer my support to organizations in this task. Please check out Consulting for more information.

Since October 2019 I am coordinating the working group on Trans Men & HIV at the organization Global Action for Trans Equality (GATE). Through the work of this group we want to spread knowledge, generate data and ensure that trans men are no longer left out in the global HIV response.

Over the past years I have gained a lot of experience (at a national and international level) in leading and conducting workshops and offering further education. My focus is on the topics of gender and sexual diversity. You can find more information under the menu item Workshops.
