Thursday 10 September 6-7pm - Trans Resilience :: Coming out of COVID-19

Thursday 24 September 6-7pm - Trans Rights :: Protection and Justice
Learn more about your rights under NSW and Federal law, including how trans people should be protected in hospital, at work, in public and at home, and options for accessing justice.

Thursday 8 October 6-7pm - Femme Queen, Faafafine, Bakla :: Decolonising the T with Bhenji Ra
We are passing the mic to Bhenji Ra to curate a forum with trans people of colour.

Bhenji Ra is a transdisciplinary artist currently based on Gadigal land, Eora Nation. Her practice combines dance, video, illustration and community activation. Her work dissects cultural theory and identity, centralising her own personal histories as a tool to reframe performance. She is the mother of Western Sydney based collective and ballroom house SLÉ.

Panellists to be announced soon.

Thursday 29 October 6-7pm - Gender Euphoria :: A New Narrative
The trans experience is so often portrayed through a lens of misery, pain and abandonment but let’s create a space to celebrate who we are and learn more about cultivating and protecting our gender euphoria.

Panellists to be announced soon.
