Event Details

Welcoming Diversity: Inclusion of LGBTIQ people with disabilities in education and beyond


Join Jax Jacki Brown, an LGBTIQ and disability rights educator for an engaging and informative presentation which will provide you with new perspectives on disability and diversity, and how we can be agents of change in creating a more accessible and inclusive society. 

 

Jax Jacki Brown is a disability and LGBTIQ activist, writer, public speaker, disability sexuality educator and workshop designer and facilitator. Jax holds a BA in Cultural Studies and Communication where she examined the intersections between disability and LGBTIQ identities and their respective rights movements. Jax is a member of the Victorian Ministerial Council on Women's Equality, The Victorian governments' LGBTI taskforce Health and Human Services Working Group and The Victorian Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission’s Disability Reference Group. She was named one of the 25 LGBTI People to Watch List in 2015 and is a co-producer of Quippings: Disability Unleashed a disability performance troupe in Melbourne. Jax teaches in disability at Victoria University and enjoys transmitting her passion for disability rights into practical applications for students. Through her presentations at conferences and universities, and her extensive publications, she provides a powerful insight into the reasons why society needs to change, rather than people with disabilities.
