Young LGBTIQ people exploring issues relevant to them

    Intersectionality! Our Final Show of 2017!

    Intersectionality! Our Final Show of 2017!

    The term “intersectionality,” was coined by scholar Kimberlé Crenshaw in a 1989 paper, and it’s the notion that oppressions intersect to create compounded, complex experiences of discrimination. That’s hard to get around but don’t worry we keep breaking down that terminology throughout the show!

    So Intersectionality can refer to the way  the effects of different forms of discrimination combine, overlap, or intersect. And how it can impact us and/or the people around us. These intersection could involve race, gender, ability, sexuality, education, age, class, culture. Lots of different things.

    We can’t control what life we are born into but we can work on checking our privilege and practicing being more inclusive of people of various intersections in everyday life.

    In this podcast we explore how to not just be a feminist or queer activist but an intersectional feminist who maybe starts to focus on feminist issues outside of white feminism. Or a queer activist who also start to focus on trans and GNC or issues for People of Colour.

    Thankyou Josie and Claire for coming in and talking with us!

    How Do I Know I’m Queer?

    How Do I Know I’m Queer?

    How are you feeling after the postal vote? Wasn’t that a full on day?! I cried a lot! Did you do anything nice to celebrate? I hope so! Where were you with the postal vote?

    Questions for you! What do you think of the word queer? Do you love it? Do you hate it? Does it conjure up yuck memories of when people used the word against you? Or does it make you feel empowered and strong – knowing you’ve reclaimed this word for your own?

    Maybe it has strong political ties for you. Or it is a nice umbrella term that fits all the ways you identity in one word.

    Queer can mean different things to different people. For some people it is a great word to describe their gender and or sexuality. However, some people in the community can feel like they are just not queer enough.

    In this podcast we explore exactly what it means to be queer and what the word means to different people.

    We were joined by 2 sparkly young people who use this word to describe their identity. And why they choose to use this label.

    Gender Fluidity!

    Gender Fluidity!

    How would you describe your gender? Do you feel like your gender identity has remained the same throughout your whole life? Or do you see your gender as more of a spectrum or sliding scale that changes over time.

    For some people gender is not stagnant but fluid, often changing throughout time. Some people can feel super femme some days and more masc the next.

    As the world starts to realise that the idea that ‘gender is binary’ is pretty outdated. We are starting to see more people (particularly young peeps) identify as gender identities such as gender fluid.

    In fact in 2016 the word was added to the Oxford Dictionary.

    In this podcast we explored what the term GENDER FLUID means, how it is different from other gender related terms like trans and cis. And how understanding gender fluidity, it might help you understand your own gender or how you can be the best ally to your gender fluid pals!

    Queer Activism

    Queer Activism

    Would you call yourself an activist?

    Are you out there attending the rallies, signing petitions and fighting for the rights of the queer community? Have you found yourself feeling a little fried as a result of the issues coming up around this postal vote?

    I’ve defo been feeling a little bit drained, emotional and at times nearly all queer-ed out. So let’s explore what it means to be an activist for the queer community, what you could do to get involved if you want to be more pro-active in the battle for queer equality. And where we could be channelling our energy as a community once this postal vote shenanigans is finally behind us.

    We will be joined by a bunch of young peeps who identity as queer activists. We will be finding what strategies they use to fight for queer equality, whether they think there are other issues we should be tackling aside from marriage equality and how they self care whilst still supporting the community.

    How Do You Make Queer Friends?

    How Do You Make Queer Friends?

    Do you remember the first time you made a queer friend?

    Did you work out you were queer and then start freaking out about how you were ever going to meet other queers? It’s obviously nice to have friends from all walk of life but it’s also really great to connect with other LGBTQIA humans, so we can talk about that stuff that sometimes only other people really get. Like how you’re going during the yuck postal vote or how cute Shane from The L Word is.

    For some of us making new pals comes super easily. Maybe you were naturally drawn to other queero humans so you instantly had a gay group, lesbo posi, rainbow chosen family or bunch of non-binary babes to hang out with. But for others it can be challenging, especially if you don’t know any other queers in your area, at your school or workplace. So in this episode we are going to try and answer the question for you:

    How do you make queer friends?? We are going to hear from 3 different young people about how they’ve made new queer pals and give you our top tips on making queer pals! I’ll also fill you in on the time I contacted someone on Facebook I had followed for years and then asked them to be my friend. Later in the show we are also going to hear about a cute all ages panel discussion about queer inclusivity that the Victorian Gay & Lesbian Rights Lobby are running that you might like to attend!

    What does it mean to be Pansexual?

    What does it mean to be Pansexual?

    In this episode we will chat about a word that has become increasingly popular over the last few years. A word to describe a person that is attracted all genders!

    If you find yourself attracted to people regardless of gender or biological sex, you too might choose to identify as PAN SEXUAL or PAN.

    In this episode, we will be exploring the difference between bisexual, poly sexual and pan sexual; whether there is stigma associated with pan sexual identity.

    And whether being pansexual has anything to do with making out with pans!

    Thanks to Maddie (22), Darcy (16), Charlie (17) and Ella (25) for sharing their thoughts during this episode!

Hi, I’m Emma, and I like this podcast a lot. It’s a great way for lgbtqiap+ people to feel less alone, or for people questioning their sexuality, allies, or those who don’t understand what lgbtqiap+ is. (Stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, Intersex, Asexual/Ally, and Pansexual/Pangender.)
Thanks! ☮️🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍⚧️🦄
