To celebrate Human Rights Week, join us on Thursday 13 December for this year’s Human Rights Oration with author, journalist and screenwriter Benjamin Law.

Benjamin’s writing has appeared in Good Weekend, frankie, The Guardian and the Australian Financial Review. Two of his books – The Family Law and Gaysia: Adventures in the Queer East – were nominated for Australian Book Industry Awards.

Benjamin has also contributed to a range of television projects, co-writing the award-winning adaption of The Family Law, working as researcher and associate producer on the SBS documentary Deep Water: The Real Story, and taking part in the most recent series of Filthy Rich and Homeless. He also co-hosts ABC RN’s weekly national pop culture show Stop Everything.
