    LGBTIQ+ Health Australia CEO, Nicky Bath, met them both at the 2022 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, where George marched for the first time.

    He’s only in his teens, but his strong pride in who he is, blew Nicky away.

    Episode 6: LGBTIQ+ Federal Election Forum

    Episode 6: LGBTIQ+ Federal Election Forum

    In this special episode of The Latest in LGBTIQ+ Health and Wellbeing, we’re bringing you a recording of the National LGBTIQ+ Election Forum, co-presented by LGBTIQ+ Health Australia, Equality Australia, the Australian Federation of AIDS Organisations, and Intersex Human Rights Australia, and hosted by ABC journalist and broadcaster Patricia Karvelas at the Victorian Pride Centre in Melbourne.

    While much progress has been made for LGBTIQ+ people over the past decades, there are still many things left to do to ensure LGBTIQ+ communities’ rights are protected and to reduce the serious disparities in health and wellbeing.

    The forum panel, made of Greens Senator Janet Rice, Labor Senator Penny Wong, and Senator Andrew Bragg of the Liberal Party, answered questions from LGBTIQ+ people and community-controlled organisations about discrimination protections and challenging prejudice, how their government would invest in our communities’ health and wellbeing, and preventing harmful medical practices on intersex people.

    Note: There were a couple of issues with technology on the evening. We have tried to repair the audio, however you may hear a couple of errors. We apologise for this.

    Episode 4: Joelle Taylor

    Episode 4: Joelle Taylor

    This episode of The Latest in LGBTIQ+ Health and Policy introduces our new and complementary format that will be weaved among the longer form episodes moving forward.

    Host, Triana Butler, will be chatting to UK based award-winning poet, performer, playwright and educator, Joelle Taylor

    Her new poetry collection, “C+nto & Othered Poems”, was released in June 2021, and enters the private lives of women from the butch counterculture, telling the inside story of the protests they led in the 90s, to reclaim their bodies as their own.

    Part memoir, part conjecture, C+nto explores sexuality and gender in poetry that is lyrical, expansive, imagistic, epic and intimate.

    Joelle and Triana chat about her experiences as a butch lesbian living in 90s London, the stories and characters throughout her life that inspired this incredible book of poetry, as well as discussing the fundamental place poetry has amongst the LGBTIQ+ community and the impact it can have on our health and wellbeing.

    She also shares an excerpt from the book – a poem called “Heaven, 1995”.
