/ Tom & Mikey / News & Politics / Matthew Wade – March Star Observer


Our regular guest Matthew Wade, editor of the Star Observer, joins Tom and Mikey once again to discuss the headlines in the March issue of the magazine. They discuss:

  • Gay, indigenous elder Uncle Jack Charles advocating for indigenous community centres and advice for young LGBTIQ+ indigenous people who may be struggling as “fringe dwellers, twice over”.
  • A retrospective looking at four major community issues over four decades, comparing the LGBTIQ+ rights struggle from the ’80s to now.
  • Longtime LGBTIQ+ advocate in Melbourne, Jac Tomlins’ article about activist burn out, and why it’s hard for those on the front line to maintain the same momentum over the years.

For all this and much more, check out Star Observer online or in hard copy at all major gay venues around the country.
