Event description

Description

Join a panel of speakers for an evening of discussion about the lives and experiences of multicultural, multifaith LGBTIQ people.

The starting point for this event is the new ground-breaking book Multicultural Queer Australia: Then, Now, Future. With pioneering and renowned contributors such as Faustina Agolley, Tony Ayres, Paul Capsis, Anton Enus, Sally Goldner, Jeremy Law, Alyena Mohummadally, and Christos Tsiolkas, and pioneering emerging and well-known contributors such as Mama Alto, Ayman Barbaresco, Tony Briffa, Lian Low, Omar Sakr and Nevo Zisin, this book acknowledges and celebrates the lives and insights of culturally, ethnically and religiously diverse GLBTIQ Australians.

Sometimes devastating, sometimes exhilarating, the contributors reflect on living and loving, identity and representation across and through racism, religious bigotry, homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia.

The book has been compiled by the Australian Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer Multicultural Council (AGMC Inc) to mark over 10 years of its work.

There will be an AUSLAN interpreter present.

Bookings essential.

This event is sponsored by the Thomas, Samuel & George Ewing Trust
