The first in a series of events from the ANU Queer* Department and TranzAustralia with elder queer-identifying people talking about their vast experiences and challenges for the benefit of those listening.

This first presentation will focus on the stories and experiences of Elder Lesbians from the Canberra community!

#62 Full-Time Social Awareness (24/7/52)

Is being queer and socially aware a full-time dedication? Like, literally full time? Are we letting the cause down if we watch a few movies that don't pass the Bechdel Test? Is it up to us to quash every project that doesn't fulfil our queer and feminist needs, or can we sometimes just let the world to get on with it? In short, do we need to be the perfect queer citizen and activist, and what will that do for how we and others see us?




Also, what happened when a Lipster took a hit of Italian confectionary? #ferrerogate

#61 Bisexual Erasure (Bye Bi?)

This week, bisexual erasure.

When we pop out our initialisms, usually B is right there near the front. But is there a tendency for bisexuality to be overlooked, ignored or even wilfully denied when it comes to the greater queer scene?FNLS has noticed and we're trying to work out why and how it happens.
