IndigNation 2009 marked the first year that the veteran members of People Like Us, who had organised all the previous years' LGBT pride months since 2005, decided to take a back seat and hand the reins of organisation to new blood. They chose a young and enthusiastic gay academic who had just returned from overseas studies in the United Kingdom. He singlehandedly organised most of the events and advertised them on Facebook. He was to be the main organiser of IndigNation annually until his departure again for postgraduate studies abroad in 2012.
