About Me

My name is Max Appenroth and I am a trans activist and diversity consultant from Cologne/Germany. I am currently doing my doctorate at the Institute for Public Health of the Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin.

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 working as the Research & Community Sexual Health Officer for the international organization Global Action for Trans Equality (GATE). Through my work  with GATE we want to spread knowledge, generate data and ensure that transmasculine and non-binary identities  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.
