We speak to queer refugee peer advocates from the Forcibly Displaced People Network and Many Coloured Sky about the issues faced by sexual and gender minority refugees and some of the benefits that could come from community sponsorship.

– Drug trials for a HIV cure are about to begin in Victoria. We speak with a lead researcher of the trial, along with Thorne Harbour Health and Living Positive Victoria about the impact a cure could have on affected people.

– Grindr has revolutionised how many queer people meet globally, allowing people to explore their sexuality discreetly, easily meet queer locals while traveling, make new friends, and of course, find sex. But it’s not all good news. We hear from researchers studying some of the app’s impacts, including addiction and perpetuating hierarchies.

– Under President Putin, Russia has become increasingly more hostile towards sexual and gender minorities. We speak with the creators of a new Russian short film that aims to counter negative rhetoric, who risk falling foul of anti-LGBT laws merely for making the film.

– Germany has some of the toughest anti-hate speech laws in the world and they were tested for the first time in the country’s highest court after Facebook removed several posts deemed hateful. While the laws make it easier to challenge and remove online hate speech, the laws have caused some concern for civil rights observers, with potential for them to be misused to stifle political dissent.

– Indonesia has one of the fastest growth rates of HIV in the region. We speak with a researcher and health professional from Java about the political causes of the rise and the creative ways advocates are working to turn the tide on rising infections.

– With people battling and dying from covid in hospitals, we speak with a frontline healthcare worker who treated patients during the UK’s first wave.

The Tokyo Olympics has seen a record number of out Olympians. We look at how rising visibility at elite levels can have a positive impact, and where more work needs to be done to increase inclusivity.

The Chinese government has censored a number of pro-LGBTQIA+ groups on the WeChat social media platform. We look into the treatment of sexual and gender minorities by the government, and how Chinese society is progressing.

New Zealand looks set to ban conversion practices. We assess the proposals, and how it compares to Victoria’s legislation.

Elections in Poland have seen the country’s far-right Law and Justice party re-elected, raising concerns for the Polish LGBTIQA+ community. 
 The Law and Justice party campaigned with a staunch anti-LGBT agenda. The party’s leader labelled LGBTIQA+ activism a threat to the nation, and Poland’s government-run broadcaster aired a homophobic documentary titled “Invasion” in the lead up to the election. 
 
Matthew Coote, a research officer at RMIT University’s EU Centre, says the Law and Justice party gained support with its strong social welfare platform, but he’s concerned homophobic rhetoric is spreading across eastern Europe.
