The crew is joined in the studio by local Aboriginal activist Brian Andy, who outlines why NAIDOC is so important, not just to the Native community, but also to the LGBT community.

Another special guest is Uncle Jack Charles, a pre-eminent who shares his experiences with being both a native and gay.

Jack also tells a story of how his elders prospered in rural Victoria, even when they were pushed out of Melbourne and segregated.

Both guests elaborate on the political renaissance of Aboriginal entitlement, along with how much farther we have to go despite all the progress we have made.

Steph and Jim speak to British journalist William Ward to get the UK perspective and Gareth Hutchens from the Guardian newspaper for an Aussie point of view.
While Brexit may not be an economic disaster in the short term, is it a dark sign of what is to come in international politics?
There is also a shout-out to NADOC, a date reserved for the Aboriginal children that were taken from their families.

Jim) talk quite philosophically about why the recent Parliamentary apology to gay men for the senseless homophobia of Victoria’s old and now repealed laws criminalising homosexual behaviour.

Jim is joined on on the hosting panel by Jon P. Wintle, as they talk about the importance of this apology for the whole community – not just LGBTI people – as a factor that promotes tolerance and acceptance, validating leadership roles for LGBTI leaders beyond their own community and into the broader community.

Rory, the young trans-man intern, co-hosts and speaks about the effect of the apology on young people.

Joining in the studio are longtime LGBTI political activist Jamie Gardiner and Victorian Sexuality & Gender Commissioner Rowen Allen, while on the phone is Anna Brown: LGBTI activist, Human Rights lawyer and co-convener of Australians4Euality.
