Portrait of James Mangisi

James Mangisi

With a commitment to Australian equity, James Mangisi has travelled the farthest and most remote regions of our country working as a science communicator. He is the Australian Sex Party’s candidate for the seat of Melbourne in the 2012 Federal Elections.

Engaging with a diverse range of Australian communities, James has worked with Aboriginal students in the Kimberly, urban youths in Newcastle and refugee secondary students in Canberra.

As a man of science, James shared his love for reason, evidence and critical thinking with over 80,000 Australians in five states and loves nothing more than seeing the passion for science burn brightly in the eyes of children.

A son of Melbourne, he grew up in Kew East and spends his time frequenting inner-city Melbourne’s parks, cafes and bars. With a passion for intellectual and physical strength, James devotes his free time to his powerlifting and writing social and political columns. In the upcoming election, he will champion same-sex marriage, euthanasia rights and the proposal of taxes for non-charitable religious organisations. James wishes to see science play a stronger role in our political discourse through evidence-based policy. The universality of enlightenment and scientific values are his moral compass.
