Queer Life Stories is about sharing the lived experiences of queer people.Our first focus will be on Tasmania, Australia before exploring the Australian mainland and hopefully some internation stories. Tasmania has had a turbulent history of LGBTIQ+ rights being the last Australian state to decriminalise homosexuality in 1997, 25 years after the first Australian state in 1972. Tasmania went on to become a progressive gay rights state sharing early support of marriage equality. Queer Life Stories will be talking to people that identify across the LGBTIQ+ spectrum and allies to capture the histories that might otherwise be lost and forgotten. We want to also explore life for the LGBTIQ+ community now in regional, rural and city areas. Each episode of our podcast will focus on an individual, telling their story. In later episodes, we will explore events, places and moments in history. It's early days for Queer Life Stories, so please listen, enjoy, subscribe, rate and follow.
