The authors warn that HIV rates persist in global populations of gay and bisexual men and trans people and an urgent change in approach is needed.

The electronic health records system […]http://media.rawvoice. My Health Record.
The electronic health records system has been in existence for several years but previously required specific patient opt-in and agreement for their information to be shared across their doctors and health care providers.
That default is about to change, with Australian’s key health information from GP visits, prescriptions, test results and imaging data such as x-rays to be made available in one secure electronic record – when you most need it. That is the proposed benefit but there are real concerns about privacy for the LGTBI community and how the reformed system will work in practice.
Tonight, in this special edition of The Informer, we hear from community about what they see as the benefits and concerns and how this impacts all of us. Whilst My Health Record might improve our health services it also raises concerns about who knows what about our sensitive health information.
Ian Muchamore speaks with Kent Burgess, Head of Services at Thorne Harbour Health about what My Health Record means for the community. He then speaks with Joshua Badge, an Academic at Deakin University on specific community concerns, and finally he speaks with Meredith Makeham, the Chief Medical Advisor of the Australian Digital Health Agency, the agency responsible for the rollout.

On this episode of The Informer we head to the LGBTIQ Women’s Health Conference that began in Melbourne. The fourth annual conference is proudly co-presented by Thorne Harbour Health and ACON and aims to create safer spaces to strengthen the health and wellbeing of all LBQ women, including Aboriginal women and Sistagirls, women of colour, women with disabilities, trans, gender diverse and intersex women.
This week is also NAIDOC Week, with celebrations and events held across Australia to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Not only in Indigenous communities, but across all of Australia, from all walks of life.
The theme of NAIDOC this year is ‘Because of Her, We Can!’, celebrating the essential role that women have played – and continue to play – as active and significant role models at the community, local, state and national levels.
Tonight on this episode The Informer, NAIDOC week and the LGBTIQ Women’s Health Conference intersect, as we hear the stories and experiences of indigenous sistagirl Elytta Adelaide Manton also known as Lismores Lilly, as well as hear from the panel discussion on Aboriginal Voices from 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!

That was what we were told after speaking with sistagirl  Elytta_Adelaide Manton also known as Lismores Lilly. As a child, she was raped and in order to remain a part of the system she kept quiet, so that she could remain living amongst the other girls instead of with the boys.
Miranda Sparks spoke to Lismore’s Lilly about her work with sistagirls in prison, as she shared what it’s like being an indigenous transgender woman.
The testimony is confronting to hear, and a part of a distressing conversation; but it’s one that needs to be shared, and an important one to listen to. But listener discretion is advised, this is a very moving yet heavy and raw conversation with Elytta_Adelaide Manton also known as Lismores Lilly.
But, it is important that we hear it.
The voices and experiences of the transgender population can often be silenced, disregarded or ignored. That cannot and should not happen.
But when you add another level of marginalisation, that of indigenous people, we need to listen, instead of assuming their experience is the same as the non-indigenous trans community.
In 2006, Lismore’s Lilly was diagnosed with breast cancer and had to undergo chemo therapy and breast scrapings, and now she is raising funds so that she can have breast reconstruction. So that when she looks in a mirror, she can do so without the need to wear implants.

Currently the Victorian Government has launched an inquiry into this so called ‘therapy’ with hopes to bring an end to the practice.
Queensland’s health minister has health minister has said he is seeking to determine if more powers can be given to Queensland’s health ombudsman, in a bid to crackdown on the therapy.
And WA’s Health Minister has restated his opposition to gay cure therapies saying people who come across professionals promoting counselling therapies should report them.
But what does gay conversion therapy actually mean, it isn’t as overt as you might think.
Now, on the Informer, we will hear from Chris and Robert, as they share their past experience trying to rid themselves of their homosexuality through this so-called therapy.
If you come across any or hear about any organisations or individuals practicing in conversion therapy, I encourage you to notify the Australian Health Practitioner Regulatory Agency at AHPRA.gov.au or you can call them on 1300 419 495.

There are also plans to start groups on the Gold Coast, Ipswich, and Toowoomba in the near future.

[…]http://media.rawvoice. For many of us, being a part of the workforce means committing much of your daily life to a specific workplace environment, but unfortunately for many in our community, those environments aren’t committed to us. Despite advances in recognition and marriage equality in broader society, a lot of us still feel like we have to hide or censor our relationships and LGBTI identities when in our professional roles.
Luckily, some businesses are committed to changing this, and as recognised by the Australian workplace equality index awards, AGL is one of them.
Dean Arcuri spoke to Phil, recruitment operations manager from AGL on what it takes for an Australian employer as large as AGL to receive Gold Employer Status and the steps they are taking to ensure LGBTI workplace inclusion internally, as well as external public support.
This segment aired on The Informer on JOY 94.9 on 10th July 2018 & was hosted by Dean Arcuri.

When we talk about family violence we mean all families and relationships, no matter your sexuality or gender, but when it comes to research data and the focus of our attention in the family violence narrative, that has been about heterosexual family violence.
So where then, do the LGBTI communities fit in the narratives of family violence?
The Victorian Government is provided funding of almost $100,000 for a ground breaking participatory project to help prevent family violence in LGBTI relationships to help to change this.
The grant will allow Women’s Health East to work with young LGBTI people to investigate and co-design appropriate and relevant resources that will support the development of respectful relationships across the state.
Dean Arcuri found out more as he spoke to Kristine Olaris, the CEO of Women’s Health East and Lara, the project lead for the new LGBTI Family Violence Preventions Project for Women’s Health East.

Gay men, have you ever thought about how you really treat women in queer spaces? I mean really thought about it?
Are they the inclusive space we want it to be for all, or is it just inclusive for you?
Menorah Foxx is a drag performer in Melbourne who surprised me when she told me that she was actually a straight cisgender women.
When Menorah came to us wanting to share her story, it was one that we think a lot of gay men need to hear.
While we can all agree that more needs to be done to create a safer and more inclusive environment for everyone, are we really doing our bit to make that happen or are we just part of the problem?

New South Wales Health organisation ACON has launched a new training website for health professionals and organisations, to improve their inclusion practices and better serve LGBTI clients, customers, and staff.
So how does it work?
It’s simple, you head to pridetraining.org.au and find out the best way to create a more inclusive working place for your staff and your business.
Allowing an organisation or individual to that information into their own hands with the e-training, business can actually reach out and get the help that they need at the click of a button.
It is training after all so there is a bit more to it than that. But getting the right support in the workplace is so important, especially within our transgender and gender diverse communities and intersex population.
We have repeatedly heard from members of our communities that when they go to medical professionals, they have to educate them or the GP simply doesn’t know what to do. But training such as this helps level the playing field on a professional level and create greater understanding of the diversity and needs of Australia’s LGBTI communities.
Accessing the information is simple and you can engage with it in the way that works best for you or your organization.
Dean Arcuri speaks with ACONS Managing and Training Coordinator, Joe Lonn.

South Australia’s Safe Schools Anti Bullying Initiative is no more. The training and support program which has been going for over a year has helped to support schools to become a more safe and inclusive environment for same sex attracted, intersex and gender diverse students, staff and families.
So, what happens come Monday when students, staff or families need support, training or just advice when it comes creating a safe space for LGBTI students? A new strategy is in development by the South Australian Department of Education, the Anti-bullying initiative, a new approach to anti-bullying, providing broader scale support, training and resources to help staff to identify and address bullying and to create safe and inclusive environments for all.
Whether that will truly take the place of the Safe Schools Anti Bullying Initiative remains to be seen, we will have to see how that develops, but even though SA’s Safe Schools and Anti Bullying Initiative will end Friday, that doesn’t mean the impact and inclusion they have created for schools and students around the country will.
Dean Arcuri spoke to Kelly, the previous Program Manager of the Safe Schools and Anti Bullying Initiative as we look back at the impact the program has had over the past year.
All enquiries and requests for support should now be directed to the Department for Education Engagement and Wellbeing team on 08 8226 2069 or email education.engagementandwellbeing@sa.gov.au.

Currently, transgender Tasmanians can’t change the gender on their birth certificate unless they have surgery to remove their reproductive organs.
But Tasmania’s Transgender community are speaking up, saying it’s time to also address the other barriers that prohibit transgender people from living full and equal lives.
Tomorrow afternoon, Tasmania’s transgender community will come together and stand tall as they begin to campaign for the rights of Transgender Tasmanians.
Dean Arcuri spoke with Tasmanian Gay and Lesbian Rights Group spokesperson, Martine Delaney.

On this episode we speak to the previous Program Manager of the Safe Schools and Anti Bullying Initiative in South Australia, which is no longer providing training and support for schools to become a more safe and inclusive environment for same sex attracted, intersex and gender diverse students, staff and families, with the program ending tomorrow.
With the confirmation last week that Tasmania is looking into removing forced transgender divorce for the state, allowing transgender Tasmanians to change their birth certificates without having unnecessary surgery to remove their reproductive organs, Tasmania’s Transgender community are coming together, and asking their politicians, why change one law, when you can change them all and the state that creates true equality for its Transgender community.
Plus, New South Wales Health organisation ACON, has launched a new training website for health professionals and organisations. We find out how this aims to improve their inclusion practices, to better serve LGBTI clients, customers, and staff.

If we want to get HIV rates down, we need a approach to treatment and prevention that targets ever Australian.
Dean Arcuri speaks to one of the authors of the article James Ward, who is the head of infectious disease research at the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute.

A fortnight ago we covered the crowing of Mr Australasia Bear 2018, Dale from Harbour City Bears, and with it saw the end of the previous titleholder’s reign.
Morro Qiu from New Zealand stepped down as a title holder. Originally born in China before emigrating to New Zealand, Morro represented a diverse image of what it means to be a bear and shared a narrative that we don’t always see, and don’t always allow enough room for a voice in our communities.
Once he had finished his title year, Morro sat down with The Informers Tom Morgan and had a chat about the privileges and perils of being in the spotlight and spreading some panda love on what it means to be an Asian man in our bear community.

Western Australia’s Attorney General John Quigley has said that he is unable to say if the McGowan government will support proposed changes to the state’s Equal Opportunity Act, because the results of the federal government’s review into religious freedom in Australia has not yet been released.
This came after Greens MP Alison Xamon put forward a bill yesterday to amend the Equal Opportunity Act to remove loopholes which allow religious based organisations to terminate the employment of staff because of their sexuality.
With bills being released in WA expunging historic homosexual convictions and an apology by the premier earlier this year, it’s got us wondering, why the hold up on the last piece of legislation in Western Australia Statutes that still allows for discrimination against members of the LGBTIQ community.

On the 22nd of May in 2017, Fairfax media broke the news that a Melbourne man had tested positive for HIV while he was on the PrEPX trial.
The minute that news hit the headlines, a member of our community had their voice taken away from them. With assumptions being drawn in the media and on social media about their sexual practices and character, and what this meant for PrEP users around the country.
We now have PrEP on the PBS and our narrative surrounding the HIV prevention drug and the people who use it have changed.
He was the fourth man worldwide to have contracted HIV while on PrEP and 1 year since the news broke, he approached Dean Arcuri, wanting to share his story and to talk about what this was like for him on JOY 94.9.
He was the subject of conversation but was able to tell his side of the story, as he saw assumptions and misinformation spread about his PrEP use, his character and his lived experience.
He still doesn’t have answers to why he contracted HIV but that doesn’t stop him from stepping forward and sharing his story, in spite of assumptions made about his character and his health when the news broke.
Now in this exclusive interview you’ll hear his side of the story.

Two days after it was reported that a Melbourne Man had contracted HIV while on the PrEPX study Chris Williams wrote the following in emen8.com.au in an article titled Facing our fears: What does news of a possible PrEP failure mean?
‘Remember that somewhere in Victoria one person is the subject of our social commentary. If you feel compelled to join in, consider your words with compassion.’
In a media release from the Victorian AIDS Council (VAC), two possible causes for the Victorian case were mentioned:
If a person is not adherent to their PrEP regimen or;
If a person comes into sexual contact with a person living with HIV who has a detectable viral load together with a strain of the virus that is resistant to PrEP medication,
At the time they didn’t yet know why this has occurred, just that it had been reported that it had.
These were the facts being reported with the information people had, and with these facts, people speculated online and in the media which lead to gossip and rumors that fueled greater stigma for this person and all people living with HIV.
Now on The Informer, the Melbourne man who contracted HIV while on the antiretroviral medication is sharing his experience of what it was like having his voice taken away from him and what that meant for his journey.

On the 22nd of May in 2017 Fairfax media broke the news that a Melbourne man had tested positive for HIV while he was on the PrEPX trial. Stating that this news had ‘sparked fears in the gay community about possible resistance to the medication’ siting fears about a non-resistant strain or HIV that could affect use of the HIV prevention drug.
The minute that news hit the headlines, a member of our community had their voice taken away from them. With assumptions being drawn in the media and on social media about their sexual practices and character, and what this meant for PrEP users around the country.
At the time he was the fourth man worldwide to have contracted HIV while on PrEP and In the lead up to 1 year since the news broke, he approached us here at JOY, wanting to share his story and to talk about what it was like for him. What it was like being the subject of conversation but not able to tell his side of the story as he saw assumptions and misinformation spread about his PrEP use, his character and his lived experience.
Now on The Informer, he shares his experience with Dean Arcuri.
A full podcast of this interview will be available to download Tuesday morning via www.joy.org.au or on your preferred podcast platform.
This segment aired on The Informer on JOY 94.9 on 2nd July & was hosted by Dean Arcuri.

The Pride Cups are not just about a rainbow on the field or the match on the day, with education programs and information training for players, coaches and officials on how to stamp out discriminatory language and make your club more inclusive.
It’s one thing for a person to come in and tell a club in a regional space how they can improve things, but another thing entirely when a member of your own community does it. And that is what Alison did in the lead up to the Shepparton Pride Cup. A local player Allison, and Damien Stevens capture what it means and what it feels to know the clubs are supporting diversity and inclusion.

Ruby Schwartz was at the parade and spoke to a group of people who blocked to protest it, refering to the Parade as pinkwashing.
Like on many other matters, the country is divided – many seeing Israel as an oasis for the LGBTI community in the Middle East, and many others believing the government uses the LGBTI community to improve its reputation while doing nothing to make their lives better.
Ruby takes us to this year’s Tel Aviv Pride, and shares with us the diverse opinions from Tel Aviv we often don’t get to hear.

Have you ever been a part of a clinical trial?
In order to find a cure for HIV, science and society need to work together.
For decades, people living with HIV have been at the centre of trying to find a cure for the disease, and people who are impacted by the disease have been stepping forward and participating in clinical research.
There’s still a long way to go before a HIV cure becomes a reality, and we will need some breakthroughs in the science as well as the testing of people living with HIV.
In the early days of the epidemic when people living with HIV signed up to test potential new drugs and treatments, HIV was a death sentence, and participating in these trials was as much about your own survival, as combating the disease world-wide.
Today, participating in clinical trials and research surrounding HIV means something a little bit different.
The Informer’s Ian Muchamore has signed up to participate in a clinical trial, and thanks to the Doherty Institute and their Melbourne Sexual Health Clinic, Ian shares with us his experience as part of the Viva Study.
The first thing Ian has to do is meet with Clinical Nurse Julie Silver, as he takes part in the study which tests if a high dose of Vitamin D can impact HIV that affects the body.

The Herald Sun & John Masanauskas have The Coming Back Out Ball in their sights after the City of Melbourne approved a $75,000 grant for the night, celebrating gay elders and honouring the sacrifices they have made to give us the equality we have today.
Citing Councilor Beverley Pinder,
“I don’t know how many times you come out,”.
“Do you come out once, or several times every year?
“I’m confused about that.”
With Pinder stating, “With so many other priorities, including childcare and homelessness, I feel that $75,000 for a ball is not good use of ratepayers’ money,” even though the event was supported by the City of Melbourne.
So what is the Coming Back Out Ball about, and why is it so important?
Now on The Informer we speak to one of the organisers after last year’s Coming Back Out Ball as well as Catherine Barrett about the importance of not only supporting and listening to our LGBTI elders, but giving them the space to live their lives as who they are, a luxury that wasn’t afforded to many of them.

LGBTI elders and allies came together last year for the Coming Back Out Ball, where elders came back out of the closet, standing tall and celebrating living their queer lives proudly.
With the City of Melbourne approving funding a $75,000 grant for the ball again this year, the Herald Sun has run an article yesterday sighting certain councillor’s objections to the event, so on this episode we will revisit last year’s Coming Back Out Ball, as we acknowledge the privileges we have today because of the sacrifices of our LGBT elders who were never afforded the safe rights and comforts.
We take you behind the scenes in a Clinical Trial to combat HIV and find out what it is like to when you volunteer to be poked and prodded, and with entries open for the Outstanding LGBTI short story competition, we let you know how you could be the Next Big Thing in queer creative writing.

How do you take someone’s story and transform it into a tail for today?
Earlier this year the ABC aired a telemovie RIOT based on real people and real events surrounding the original gay and lesbian mardi gras protest and reflecting on ran important chapter in Australia’s LGBTIQ history.
Riot showed how even with the system against them and ever-present adversity, including police brutality, legislative persecution, social shunning, job dismissal and general violence, activists decide to come out fighting in their celebration of diversity.
And it was all thanks to the 78ers that we could tell this story.
Ti Butler spoke to Greg Waters, the writer of RIOT and asked what it was like telling a piece of Australian history in this way.

This weekend is not only the 40thanniversary of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, but one of the weekends of Sydney Pride Festival as well. To commemorate Sundays Anniversary, there are plenty of events happening including the Pride of Place Conference, remembering our past and shaping our futures.
The conference co-sponsored by the Ally Network, the 78ers, Sydney Pride History, the University’s Culture Strategy, and the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, will explore themes of intergenerational lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer experience, and celebrate the evolving purpose, identity and influence of Mardi Gras within the LGBTIQ community. The relationship between LGBTIQ politics and Indigenous Australians, as well as multi-ethnic communities, will be a focus of conference discussion.
There will be a giant new inflatable art installation to be set up in Taylor Square to mark four decades of the event. With the  inflatable art installation titled 40 Years of Love – towering three storeys over Taylor Square on Oxford Street from Sunday.
You can join the 78ers at the Columbian hotel for a drink in their honour and much more. You can find all the details at Sydneypride.com.
As people drink and celebrate in honour of a political protest that fought for our freedoms, it made us wonder what Sydney Mardi Gras actually means to you.
For some it will always be a place of protest, for others, it is a space of celebration. Is the parade too corporate, or have we lost our activist edge?
At Mardi Gras Fair Dean Arcuri decided to explore what Mardi Gras means in 2018 to the community that celebrate it.

At 10pm on the 24th of June 1978, the first Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras took place. Nothing like it is today, the first march was met with police violence that became a catalyst for change.
From arrest to acceptance Sydney’s Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras grew out of a terrible night in our history.
A planned street festival calling for an end to discrimination against homosexuals in employment and housing, an end to police harassment and the repeal of all homosexual laws, saw 2000 people step out from the Oxford Street Bars and clubs responding to the call, out of the bars and into the street.
Although the organisers had obtained permission, this was revoked, and the parade was broken up by The police.
It was actually the opposition that the march was met with when it first began, both from outsiders and within our own communities, that help to shape it into the iconic beacon of pride we see today as one of Australia’s most loved events.
But as we look at 40 years of Mardi Gras, what does moving from protest to pride actually mean. At Mardi Gras Fair Day earlier this year, Dean Arcuri sat down with Ken, Diane, Michael and Robin from the 78ers and asked just that, as they reflect on that first march and how far we have come today.

We have other shows on JOY such as World Wide Waves that look at what is happening globally, but sometimes it is important for us to take the time to focus past our own backyard.
During IDAHOBIT last month, we at The Informer started talking about finding ways on the show to highlight what is going on in our LGBTIQ Global community, while still bringing you the news and current affairs for Australia.
We started to remember that 12 months ago we couldn’t stop talking about what was happening in Russia with Vigils of solidarity all around the country, and here we are, 12 months later, and circumstances for our LGBTIQ community in Russia continues to get worse, and we hear about it less and less.
Now on The Informer, Darcy Meehan reminds us of the past year in Russia, because just because their isn’t a headline, doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be reminded of injustices around the world.

They’re burly, hirsute and dogged with lingering queries about their proclivities in the woods; If you noticed a seeming migration of bears around Melbourne last week (no, the other kind of bears) that would be because the annual Southern Hibearnation event week was on here in Melbourne; celebrating all things bear in the gay community and culminating in the Mr Australasia Bear Competition, crowning a representative of the Australian and New Zealand bear community for the coming year.
Tom Morgan heads down to the festivities and spoke with each of this year’s contestants about what exactly defines a bear, their hopes for the title, and gave them a little practise at their pageant answers ahead of the competition including this year’s winner Dale, from Habour City Bears in NSW.

On this episode of The Informer we speak to Russian LGBT support group ‘Coming Out’ about their World Cup LGBT Safety Hotline, based out of St Petersburg. The hotline provides free psychological and legal support to both residents and tourists who have experienced attacks or discrimination, to help ensure the safety of LGBT people in St. Petersburg during the World Cup.
We also continue last week’s discussion with Professor Martin Holt about his paper, Community-level changes in condom use and uptake of HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis by gay and bisexual men in Melbourne and Sydney, and find out more about the bigger picture of men’s sexual health and safety.
Is the right knowledge about prep, undetectable viral loads about safer sex in 2018 really reaching those we need to?
Or are some gay and bisexual men either ignorant, complacent or just irresponsible?

Last week we reported in the findings of the report with Professor Martin Holt from the Center for social research and health at the university of NSW.
The findings show that about 20% of all gay and bisexual men surveyed are part of a group which is either HIV negative or untested, they are NOT on prep and they don’t use condoms consistently. The size of that group has not changed over surveys despite guys who were early adopters of PrEP being in this group.
One of the related issues which has been highlighted by a recent study seems to be that negative men who are NOT on prep are not convinced about U=U, that if their partner is HIV positive with an undetectable viral load then they ARE protected from HIV
Is the right knowledge about prep, and undetectable viral loads about safer sex in 2018 really reaching those we need to?
Are some gay and bisexual men either ignorant, complacent or irresponsible?
Ian Muchamore continued his discussion from last week with Professor Martin Holt at the Center for social research and health at the university of NSW.

This year’s FIFA World Cup is being held in Russia, a country that in recent years has made headlines for its moves back toward conservatism and away from individual human rights, specifically for the LGBTI community.
While homosexuality and the official changing of gender following sex-reassignment surgery are legal in the country, no anti-discrimination or protection of gender identity laws exist for LGBTI people, and most recently, ‘gay propaganda laws’ known officially as the federal Russian law “for the Purpose of Protecting Children from Information Advocating for a Denial of Traditional Family Values” was enacted in 2013, which sees locals facing fines, businesses forced to stop trading for 90 days on top of hefty fines, and foreigners and tourists risking arrest, detainment for up to 15 days before being deported, as well as financial penalties if convicted.
Recognising this, a number of groups, including British MPs have spoken out, warning of the risk to LGBT soccer fans travelling to the country for the World Cup. More than active demonstration, fans travelling have been warning against holding hands and public displays of affection, or even waving rainbow flags during the event, citing concerns of violence and so called ‘fan hooliganism’ in retaliation, which has seen a significant rise in the country in the wake of the anti-propaganda laws, rather than specific bans.
Despite reported claims by the Ambassador and others, there are of course LGBT communities throughout Russia, albeit often underground, and they are not taking this threat lying down.
Instead, despite dealing with these struggles as part of their everyday lives, Russian LGBT activists are reaching out to those travelling to the country with support.
Coming Out is a St. Petersburg-based initiative established in 2008, which works for universal recognition of human dignity and equal rights of all, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. This year, Coming Out has established a World Cup LGBT Safety Hotline in St. Petersburg, with similar organisations set up to service those in Moscow and other regions across Russia.
Dean Arcuri spoke with Polina from Coming Out about the hotline.

JOYs Dean Arcuri & Silas Palmer from the Melbourne Chargers take you through the play by play as it happens as well as all the celebrations after the match.
With Interviews from match referee Emanuele Tomo, Convicts Dom Rose & Andrew Sanderson as well as Andrew Fuzz Purchase & Alice Hoglan.
Around 2,500 players from over 70 different teams travelled from North America, Europe and Oceania to take part in this year’s competition.
Held biennially since 2002, the Bingham Cup is dedicated to the memory of Mark Bingham, the rugby player who helped establish the gay rugby teams San Francisco Fog and the Gotham Knights before his death in the 9/11 terror attacks.
Please note there is some joyfully emotional and slightly explicit language used by the crowd and winners at the conclusion of the match.

There’s a special kind of inclusivity when it comes to rugby that really shines through, and tonight we talk to Wes, who had to play his ex American teammates at this years tournament with the Melbourne Chargers, and Rob, a former Melbourne Charger who now plays with the Kings Cross Steelers, about how Rugby is connecting gay players across the globe.

The hepatitis C virus is one of several viruses that can cause inflammation of the liver & involves an initial acute phase of infection that may not be noticeable, because in most cases people do not feel sick. This phase can last up to six months.
The virus is slow acting, and it can take many years from infection before any permanent damage to the liver, such as scarring, occurs.
To access treatment for hepatitis C it’s easy to visit a GP. But what if you don’t have or trust your GP? When it comes to Hep C, it’s time to start focusing on the parts of our communities  who aren’t accessing treatment, and safe inection rooms are a great place to start.
Darcy & Dean talk Hep C treatment access with Stephen McNally, the Deputy CEO at Pennington Institute a non-profit organization that works to identify and respond to substance use problems and there causes.

Why is the rest of the world so obsessed with the sex lives of Australian gay & bisexual men?
A paper published in The Lancet last week titled Community-level changes in condom use and uptake of HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis by gay and bisexual men in Melbourne and Sydney, Australia highlighted, amongst other things, an increase in PrEP use to protect against HIV, but a decline in condom use for men who are not taking the HIV prevention drug.
Ian Muchamore spoke to Professor Martin Holt at the Center for social research and health at the university of NSW now on The Informer, to find out more about the data, and make sure we are getting the whole picture.

Last Saturday night was the third annual Pride Round of the AFL at Etihad stadium here in Melbourne, between St Kilda and the Sydney Swans.
Last week also saw Pride Cup Australia launch their #WEAREPRIDECUP campaign, with support from VicHealth, promoting diversity and inclusion in the sport in regional teams around Australia.
I headed down to AFL House for the campaign launch, and spoke to James Lolicato and Jason Ball, co-founders of Pride Cup Australia, VicHealth’s Stefan Grun, and some of the players representing about #WEAREPRIDECUP and why it is so important to promote LGBTIQA+ inclusion in the sport.

On June 12th 2016 our community, and the world were devastated by the tragic mass shooting at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida in the United States. A single gunman, Omar Mateen, entered the gay nightclub with an assault rifle killing 49 people, and injured even more again in the deadliest single instance of violence against LGBTI people in U.S history, and what was, at the time, the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S history.
Two years on, the effects of this tragic event are still felt today, not only across the United States, but throughout the world, including here in Australia.
Tom speaks with Jess Innes-Irons, whom, having felt and seen the reaction to this devastating event, conducted research into Australians reactions via social media to the Pulse Nightclub Shooting, as part of her Bachelor of Arts honours at ACU.

On this episode of The Informer, Dean Arcuri & Silas Palmer are reporting from Amsterdam, as the Sydney Convicts have once again won the Bingham Cup, the worldwide gay & inclusive rugby tournament, taking the trophy for the fifth time in the competition’s nine tour history on the weekend, beating the Gotham Knights 22 to 8.
The 3-day tournament saw gay and inclusive rugby teams take to the field from all around the world, not only to compete in an inclusive tournament for the Bingham Silverware, but also to be a part of something greater than any individual.
We take you through Bingham 2018 from Amsterdam, which saw the tournament be even more inclusive than ever before thanks to a women’s league. We saw such strong playing on the field, in the type of games that help to change what it means to be a part of a rugby team, plus we hear from the Sydney Convicts Rugby Club as they celebrate their win.

We are coming to you from Amsterdam for this episode of The Informer as the Sydney Convicts have once again won the Bingham Cup, the worldwide gay & inclusive rugby tournament.
If you’ve ever watched a Bingham Cup grand final, I think you’d agree that it is something special. All the competitiveness but filled with comradery and strength that really embodies what the tournament is all about.
This year, the Sydney Convicts beat the Gotham Knights 22 to 8 in a brilliant game that saw the Knights take the knee as their national anthem before play began, which was cheered on by the crowd filled with players and supporters from all around the world.
But the glory went to the Sydney Convicts who won the Bingham Cup for their 5th time in the tournaments nine-tour history, and join myself and Silas Palmer now as we head to the field minutes after the Sydney Convicts victory.

During the weekend, the world eagerly watched as the Irish abortion referendum results were announced. It was a landslide win for abortion rights in Ireland, but what are your rights at home?
Here in Australia, do you know what the laws are in each state when it comes to abortion and your rights?
The Informer’s Rachel Tyler Jones takes us state by state.
If you need more information about abortion in Queensland or New South Wales, Children by Choice is a Brisbane-based not-for-profit organisation that offers pro-choice, client-centred informatin on all unplanned pregnancy options, including abortion, adoption and parenting. To find out more, visit www.childrenbychoice.org.au or call 1800 177 725 Queensland-wide. If you are located in New South Wales, the information on this website is still helpful, and the list of interstate abortion providers is relevant to those living in both Queensland and New South Wales, where abortion is, for the most part, illegal.
If you are in South Australia, SHINE SA is a leading not-for-profit provider of both primary care services andeducation for sexual and relationship wellbeing. They offer free drop-in clinics for young people under the age of 25, they’re actively LGBTI friendly, and if you search the word ‘abortion’ on their website their fact sheet on abortion is accessible and very informative. To find out more, visit www.shinesa.org.au or call 1300 794 584.
For those in the Northern Territory, the Family Planning Welfare Association of the Northern Territory is a not-for-profit organisation that offers, among other services, information on how to access pregnancy termination services in the Northern Territory. To find out more, visit www.fpwnt.com.au, or call (08) 8948 0144.
If you are located in Tasmania, you can access information on abortion in Tasmania, including information on travel assistance if you have to travel to Melbourne to access pregnany termination services, by contacting the state-wide not-for-profit Family Planning Tasmania. To find out more, visit http://www.fpt.asn.au/.
If you are located in Victoria, and for those in Tasmania who may need to travel to access abortion services, you can access information through Family Planning Victoria. To find out more, visit the website at www.fpv.org.au, or for general advice and information over the phone, call the Box Hill clinic and ask to speak with a nurse for reproductive and sexual health advice on 1800 013 952.
For those in Western Australia, we were unable to find a dedicated not-for-profit organisation offering information on abortion, however, most abortions in Western Australia are accessed through the public system, so your GP should be able to advise you on your options. If this isn’t appropriate in your case, and for those who may not have easy access to a clinic Australia-wide, there is another option.
There are for-profit companies that offer medical abortion remotely via a phone consultation. A medical abortion, or non-surgical abortion, involves taking medication to induce a termination. If you google ‘abortion by telephone australia’, some of these services will come up on the first results page. Before accessing these services, it is recommended that you speak to a medical professional you trust to ensure that they are right for you, and to confirm that the service you are considering accessing is going to act in your best interests.

ABBI serves individuals, churches, denominations, and Bridge Builders International report looking at Gay Conversion Therapy in Australia, with ABBI founder Anthony Venn-Brown.
ABBI serves individuals, churches, denominations, leaders and religious organizations in a respectful and non-confrontational way along their journey to understand LGBTI people, their community, and relationships.
We often make assumptions about Conversion Therapy based on media from the UK and USA, which has led to miscommunications with what it means here in Australia.
The ABBI report on ‘Conversion Therapy in Australia’ is a detailed look at our past, with sobering data about our present that can help us to make real change about the future of Conversion Therapy in Australia.
Now we continue The Informer’s Dean Arcuri’s conversation with Ambassadors and Bridge Builders International founder Anthony Venn-Brown. Exploring why this is an issue so important to Venn-Brown, with some harsh realities of religious conversion therapy in Australia, and how ABBI are trying to achieve change for the better.

Is there a difference?
Do you actually understand what conversion therapy is, or just what you see in the headlines?
Ambassadors and Bridge Builders International have released a detailed report looking at Gay Conversion Therapy in Australia, to not only combat some of the misinformation we are seeing in the media, but to also help to clear up the conversation, highlighting the realities of this so called ‘therapies’ of the past, and the practices of the present within religious institutions.
ABBI serves individuals, churches, denominations, leaders and religious organizations in a respectful and non-confrontational way along their journey to understand LGBTI people, their community, and relationships.
Dean Arcuri sat down with ABBI founder Anthony Venn-Brown to discuss the report, and the reality we aren’t noticing, when it comes to religious conversion therapy.
You can find a copy of the report here : http://www.abbi.org.au/2018/05/gay-conversion-therapy-in-australia/

ACON is New South Wales’s leading LGBTI health organisation. It’s latest report, ‘In Pursuit of Truth and Justice: Documenting Gay and Transgender Prejudice Killings in NSW in the Late 20th Century’ shines a light on the suspected anti-gay homicides that occurred in NSW from the 1970s to the early 1990s.
The report explores the factors that enabled a culture of anti-gay violence to thrive in NSW during this period. The report also brings to the fore the failures in the criminal justice system at the time and highlights the lasting effects these shortcomings have had on members of the LGBT community.
Importantly, the report presents a series of recommendations aimed at achieving justice and healing for victims and survivors, enhancing current responses to hate crimes and strengthening ongoing efforts in violence prevention.
Now on The Informer, Dean Arcuri & Rachel Tyler Jones speak with ACON’s safety inclusion and historic injustice project manager Michael Atkinson to find out more about the report, and what steps we can take to not only heal the wounds of the past, but get some justice as well.
