The Amnesty International Human Rights Concert takes place on Saturday 3 December to mark International Human Rights Day. This year's concert will feature Dana Martin, winner of this year's Human Rights songwriting competition at the Palm Creek Folk Festival.
Dana's winning song "International Transgender Visibility Day" has a powerful positive message and catchy chorus and tells how much things have changed. In the past, transgender people were labelled as sick and sent to a psychiatrist, while today there is support, special clinics, freedom to be “ my natural happy me” and a special day International Transgender Visibility Day.
Dana will be supported at the concert by the Misty Mountains musicians from her home on the Atherton Tableland.
Other performers at the concert include Jacqui Stock, runner up at the Palm reek songwriting competition and Friends of Pete Seeger, a group of Townsville musicians who regularly come together to perform songs in the spirit of folksinging legend Pete Seeger.
The concert free and people will be given the opportunity to make a donation towards the human rights campaigning of Amnesty International. Refreshments will be available from the bar at the Courthouse Theatre.
