Better Together https://joy.org.au/bettertogether Session recordings from Australia's LGBTIQA+ conference Sun, 10 Oct 2021 17:00:44 +0000 en-US hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=5.8.1 The Better Together Podcast contains recordings from Australia's LGBTIQA+ Conference, the Better Together Conference, presented by The Equality Project.<br /> <br /> In order to facilitate a conversation about LGBTIQ+ rights in Australia we need to have a platform to share our ideas and experiences and build bridges between our diverse communities. The Equality Project does this through a national conference called Better Together. To ensure the Better Together Conference remains accessible for the wider Rainbow Community, JOY has recorded and produced as many sessions as possible from the conferences, bringing you this 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.  

When the Marriage Equality debate was on in 2017, LGBTIQ elder Malloy Rolfe and her partner Natalie were involved in a local Catholic parish group that met once a month for a free lunch for people who were isolated. One day the chairperson of the pastoral council came to the group and handed out fliers about not voting for politicians that supported Marriage Equality in the Federal Election, and gave a speech in Italian. This was followed by Malloy attending her usual weekly masses and being subjected to similar fliers in the Church. 

Malloy and Maria made a complaint to the Chair of the Parish Pastoral Council and it took almost two years of phone calls, emails and gaslighting before the Chair sent an email saying that he had traditional views. In the meantime, Malloy and Maria had filed a complaint with the Cathedral’s Professional Standards board and several meetings with a priest and a Complaints Officer happened before the Chair’s backhanded apology and refusal to meet with Malloy, Maria and the Complaints Office to discuss ways forward. Soon after, he stood down from his position although we were never told why. 
 
In this presentation and discussion, and in the light of the current Religious Discrimination Bill, we will be discussing what we learned, what we would do differently, and what we would recommend to other LGBTIQ persons of faith. We will reflect on the significance of intersectional factors such as age, gender, ethnicity, language, class and migration.

Using a piece of art showcased at the United Nations, this presentation talks to Australia’s First Peoples living with disability who identify as LGBTIQ+ community members, and the intersectionality between these. Talking to the impact that the introduction of western religion and colonisation has had on the First Nations LGBTIQ+ community, we pose the question of LGBTIQ+ people being accepted as part of the rich and diverse social structure of First Peoples culture  and communities for thousands of years, prior to the introduction of western beliefs and perceptions. 
Speakers: Uncle Paul Calcott, Kelly Treloar

Hear from an expert sex worker leadership panel from around Australia as they showcase collective sex workers’ leadership, highlight the failures of criminalisation and licensing in VIC, SA & QLD, and the benefits of decriminalisation for the rights of all sex workers, and offer a window into the urgent ongoing struggle for full decriminalisation and the recent sucesses of the sex workers rights movement.
Sex workers have always been at the heart of the queer and trans community and activism. The many sex workers who identify as LGBTIQ+ have lived, mourned, fought and celebrated alongside their queer and trans allies, and now sex workers need our communities to join us in our fight for our occupational and human rights.
Featuring speakers from SIN, Scarlet Alliance, SWOP NT and Sex Worker Reference Group, Vixen Collective, Respect Inc and Decrim QLD.
