2021: Growing Together In A Year Apart


Welcome to the 2021 Better Together Conference Podcast. Recorded live at the Adelaide Convention Centre on the 18th and 19th of June, 2021. These sessions were proudly recorded and produced by JOY 94.9.  

The Pinnacle Foundation provides scholarships to young, disadvantaged LGBTQI+ people – enhancing their education, and ending the isolation too many experience. In this session Pinnacle scholars and mentors tell how they’ve grown together through lockdowns and social distance.

Social change is, at its heart, a story of individual change – of how people’s lives becoming better. Attendees will hear young LGBTQI+ students talk of their year in two parts – who they were when they commenced their Pinnacle scholarships, and who they are now. The most striking change scholars say the Pinnacle brings to their lives is how they feel connected to a ’new’ family.

Facilitator: Simon Royal (Pinnacle Foundation).  

Speakers: Dr Jacinta Clark, Isabelle Kotasek, Nathan Cappelluti and Dr Mark Fuller
