/ The Informer / Media / Listening and learning with the Aboriginal Voices Panel at the LGBTIQ Women’s Health Conference


At the close of today’s LGBTI Womens Health Conference, there was a brilliant panel discussion titled Aboriginal Voices with Nazree Dickerson, Dodie Eggmolesse, Esther Montgomery and Jackie Stewart facilitated by Allison Toby

Alison opened the panel by asking, being indigenous in any space is pretty hard, but what can we learn from our history of addressing LGBTIQ visibility in aboriginal and Torres strait islander communities, what works and what do you think doesn’t?

Here are some of the panels answers to that first question.

We will have a full podcast of that, and other panels from the LGBTI Womens Health Conference up on the JOY website soon.

Though we are heading towards the end of NAIDOC week, that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate, respect and listen to the voices, stories and history of the Indigenous and Torres Straight Island communities. And if you aren’t making space for their stories, it’s time to think about why!

This segment aired on The Informer on JOY 94,9 on 12th July 2018 & was hosted by Tom Morgan.
