Robbie from MAD Wednesday had a friend who reached to him asking for some help.

They are a teacher and had a student come out to them, and they wanted advice on what they should say and how they should help them.

So Robbie decided to do one better than just saying what he thought, and we took to the JOY listeners to share their advice and experiences.

What would you say?

Elder abuse is everybody’s business,  and last month Respect Victoria launched a new family violence prevention campaign joining the fight against elder abuse,

The Commissioner for Senior Victorians, Gerard Monsour joined Robbie and Dean on MAD Wednesdays to talk about what elder abuse means, and how we can, and should call it out when we see it.

 Elder abuse may be physical, sexual, financial, psychological, social and/or neglect, and can occur in aged care facilities and nursing homes or even in your own home.

Keeping elderly people connected to their communities is a great way to change the narrative and stigma around ageing. in our LGBTI communities we have two great programs that engage and elevate our elders, Out and About by Switchboard and the LGBTI+ Elders Dance Club by All the Queens Men.

John Pastoriza-Piñol joined Robbie & Dean on MAD Wednesday to discuss his art exhibition Sobriquet.

‘The wearer should fit the leather not the leather fit the wearer’ 

In a homoerotic male context, wearing black leather clothing is a sexual self-expression of heightened masculinity, sexual power and an engagement in fetishism.

Pastoriza-Piñol’s previous solo exhibition, Nubile Perfection was also about sexual self-expression but of a very different subject matter – flowers –  but this time he uses the same art practise to explore leather and leather men.

Catch the exhibition at Scott Livesley Gallery.

With debate on a Bill  in the Victorian Parliaments Lower House (Legislative Assembly) on Birth Certificate reform, it is time to show your support for the transgender and gender diverse communities.

The day before the debate begins,  transgender activists and allies gathered on the steps of Parliament House for a community photo to show how many people support birth certificate reform. Dean from MAD Wednesday was a part of the this.

In this special segment, we hear from transgender activists, community members and politicians about why reform such as this is so important.

It’s a serious turn to take on a drive show, but one Robbie and Dean were proud to bring to the airwaves of JOY.

Thank you to transgender elder Sally Conning, Sally Goldner from Transgender Victoria, Kochava Lilit from YGender, Jeremy Wiggins and Sage Akouri for speaking with us, as well as Minister for Equality Martin Foley, Leader of the Reason Party Fiona Pattern, and Andy Medic from the Animal Justice Party.
