Word for Word is JOY 94.9 interview show with host Lisa Dano Daniel. Today’s guest is Jonathan Butler. Jonathan was born in Sydney, spent his formative years in Launceston Tasmania and then moved to Melbourne to attend university when he was 18. After pondering careers in psychology, acting, writing or photography he settled on photography, but over the last few years he has also taken up writing. This has culminated in his newly released book titled The Boy in the Dress which is a deeply personal account of a possible gay hate crime involving a family member in 1944. Combining true crime, with queer history and personal memoir, The Boy in the Dress raises questions about Australia’s military culture, and also sent Jonathan down a path of personal and family discovery that lasted over a decade.  

Word for Word is hosted by Lisa Daniel on JOY 94.9, and produced by Ellen Spalding and this podcast originally aired on March 5, 2022. For further information head to JOY 94.9 webpage or email Lisa Daniel and the team at Word for Word.
