We have 22 days of the best queer arts, culture, events, parties and Pride. It’s a change for Victoria’s rainbow community to show its true colours. Midsumma is also a celebration of difference and diversity. And the celebration goes beyond the boundaries of the state of Victoria.

In exploring some of the internationally focused events, tonight we turn to our regional neighbours of the Pacific. Storytelling is a vital way of communicating across generations and across cultures. And there is a Midsumma event that will do just that – Queer Pasifika: The Rebirth of The Cool. We will be joined in the studio by the Samoan fa’afafine host of the event, Amao Leota Lu.

And we don’t yet know what to expect in 2022. One thing we can guarantee is that JOY will continue to bring you the diverse stories of the rainbow community from around the world, in all its pain, inspiration and – dare I say – joy!

So tonight we thought we would bring you a few of our favourite shows and guests from 2021. And it was a hard choice. From Turkey to Jamaica, Russia to Bermuda, we have covered all points of the globe, before we settled on:

  • How street walking and public kiss-ins are challenging views on LGBT people in the Dominican Republic.
  • We speak to Lithuania’s first openly gay Member of Parliament about his plans for law changes.
  • Hear an openly queer Palestinian singer who is a rare voice of tolerance.
  • And be inspired by a young queer person in Nigeria taking to the airwaves to fight homophobia.

But if you are LGBTIQ and multicultural, a whole new complexity develops about where and how you fit in to Australian society. This intersectionality of culture diversity and sexual orientation or gender diversity is full of hidden hurdles.

The Melbourne-based Australian GLBTIQ Multicultural Council has delved into the personal stories of racism and other forms of discrimination. Their report, titled – Navigating Intersectionalities: Multicultural and Multi-Faith Victorians Talk About Discrimination and Affirmation – bring to light some uncomfortable truths. Joining us in the studio tonight are the report co-researchers – Maria Pallotta-Chiarolli and Budi Sudarto from the Australian GLBTIQ Multicultural Council.

There are no laws against sex between women. LGBT people do face discrimination in their daily lives but it is not as prevalent or as dangerous as some of their African neighbours. One way that change is happening is through the telling of stories. One of these stories has become a feature film – the first Namibian LGBT feature film.

Philippe Talavera is the Director of the film Kapana. He is a Frenchman who now calls Namibia home. He joined us from London where Kapana was making its European premiere.

Same-sex sexual activities are punishable by up to 14 years in prison. Acts of violence and blatant discrimination against LGBT people are rife. Between the mainly Muslim north and the Christian dominated south, there is little acceptance that LGBT people even exist. So how do you have visibility in such a challenging environment?
Timi decided that the stories of the queer community in Nigeria were remaining untold. He wanted a safe space where queer people could share their stories, their concerns and their hopes. So he created the Queer City Podcast as a way to connect local LGBT people and raise their profile in the broader community that queer people exist. And he has even bigger plans for the future of Nigeria’s rainbow community.

They provided non-financial support to a webinar with US author, Lee Badgett, who spoke about the findings of her recent book – The Economic Case for LGBT Equality. The invitation-only event was run by not-for-profit Oogachaga LGBT Counselling Service, who were immensely surprised by the rebuke.
In a place where homosexuality, is illegal yet there are legal gay bars, it is clear that Singapore is a land of complexity. One thing that is clear though – the Singapore government doesn’t like the international community getting involved in what they see as their business. So tonight we delve into what is behind this culture and why LGBTI rights aren’t progressing, with our friend of the show Yangfa Leow, the Executive Director of Oogachaga LGBT Counselling Service in Singapore.

LEARN MORE Capital punishment, also known as the death penalty, is state-sanctioned homicide as punishment for a crime. Crimes that are punishable by death are known as capital crimes, capital offences or capital felonies, and vary depending on the jurisdiction. Globally, of the 195 UN members or observer states, 54 countries carry out capital punishment. And in some countries, the death penalty applies for same-sex sexual acts. But as we will learn tonight, the death penalty is just one part of the story.
Eleos Justice, Monash University in partnership with the Capital Punishment Justice Project here in Australia have delved into this complex and often hidden area to produce the first comprehensive study of its kind. The report is titled: State-Sanctioned Killing of Sexual Minorities: Looking Beyond the Death Penalty. It was launched this week with an international online forum. Guests include:

* Internationally-respected Australian jurist, Julian McMahon;
* Report co-authors: Associate Professor Mai Sato (director, Eleos Justice, Monash Faculty of Law) and Christopher Alexander (Eleos Justice Fellow, Monash Faculty of Law);
* Rasha Younes, covering the Middle East and North Africa for international advocacy group Human Rights Watch;
* Professor Paula Gerber, Eleos Justice Fellow, Monash Faculty of Law; and
* Roya Boroumand is the Executive Director, Abdorrahman Boroumand Center for Human Rights in Iran.

Even aside from that, living as an LGBTI person in Kenya is difficult where homosexuality is a taboo subject. Beatings, persecution, being thrown out of your home are all a reality. Yet this is the country that LGBT people from surrounding countries flee to for safety.
Kenya’s refugee camps are a relative safe-haven for LGBT people escaping persecution in Uganda, South Sudan and Somalia. Run by the UN refugee agency, they so provide some protections, but life is still a daily matter of survival. One Melbourne man is leading the charge for change. David Ayliffe has founded “Humanity in Need – Rainbow Refugees” where individuals doing their own little bit to help LGBTI people in faraway nations like Kenya.
