The Australian GLBTIQ Multicultural Council and Hares & Hyenas present Under the Skin #4, a panel series exploring queer life from culturally and linguistically diverse perspectives.
Diversity within diversity: trans and CALD.
What experiences can occur when someone is transgendered and also from a cultural and/or linguistically diverse background? How is it like to navigate between the two?
This panel will explore whether identifying as transgender can impact on a person’s cultural identity, and vice-versa: whether a person’s cultural background impacts on aspects of sexual and transgender identity.
What experiences – both positive and negative – can be gained when there is “diversity within diversity”?
Chaired by Sally Goldner, our AGMC panel includes Kylie Supski (Artist/Performer), Kai Clancy (Educator, Victorian Aids Council), Erik Ly-Nyguen (YGender) and Marco Fink (Minus 18). There will also be a guest writer, AE Dooland, who will read a chapter from her book “Under My Skin“.
This panel discussion is the fourth in a series of evenings devoted to exploring queer diversity in ethnicity, culture and language in Australia.
