Presented jointly by Melbourne trans arts advocate and independent producer Teddy Darling, in collaboration with Yarra Libraries and Minus18. This event was made possible by the Victorian Government through the Multicultural Festivals & Events Program.
Teddy Darling thanks assistant producer Nesceda Blake, and acknowledges the work of behind-the-scenes volunteers and queer arts collective for assisting with this event. Pictured: Fey Kapur, image by Teddy Darling.
This event occurs on the living and breathing lands of the Wurundjeri people, and Teddy Darling, Yarra Libraries, and Minus18 pay their respects and offer gratitude to past, present, and emerging Elders of the Kulin Nations. We invite queer and trans indigenous folks to attend and join the discussion. This always was and always will be Aboriginal land; we support priority being given to indigenous voices, stories, and experiences as the first peoples of this land.
