Let’s Talk…Social Justice with Shane Sturgiss
This week on Let’s Talk…Social Justice, Kevin catches up with the CEO of BlaQ, Shane Sturgiss. BlaQ is the peak organisation for Aboriginal Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, Asexual & Sistergirl & Brotherboy peoples and communities in NSW.
Kevin & Shane catch up on the fight for justice, safety, inclusion, support, affirmation & celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander LGBTQIA+SB communities in NSW and beyond. They reflect on what we already know about the dangerous intersection of homophobia, transphobia, misogyny & racism and its impacts on the mental and physical health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
Kevin & Shane talk through the urgent necessity of understanding the relationship between queer justice and health justice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and beginning all models of queer and trans health care from an uncompromising commitment to celebrate, platform, and support queer & trans Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
