This episode features the talk ‘Transgender Awareness and The Law’ by Cassandra Giudice from Transgender Awareness Australia. This talk was recorded at the 2016 Institute for Critical Animal Studies (ICAS Oceania) conference – you can hear all of the talks from this conference here and you can also hear a recap of this conference on episode 152.

We’re also joined by Lara Drew and Dan Kidby from Veganarchy who discuss the upcoming 2017 ICAS Oceania conference, which will be in Melbourne from the 15th-16th of July. You can hear them discuss their article ‘The lines are being drawn, the case for a divided animal movement’ on our last episode, #169.

There’s also a discussion on 457 visas and a sense of entitlement over “Australian jobs” – reflected in the Labor party’s shocking Australians First ad. Along similar lines but in a US context, sociologist Michael Kimmel links Donald Trump’s success to white male rage and a sense of entitlement over “our jobs”.

Nick's message of support queer refugees

Nick’s message of support for queer refugees. This picture was taken at the End Queer Lockdown on Manus Island stall where Nick met Aaron and we set up this discussion.

Listen to this episode and subscribe to our podcast on iTunes. You can also listen to this episode on StitcherCyber Ears or download it on Archive.org (41 mins, 23MB). 

Nick is joined by Aaron from End Queer Lockdown on Manus Island for the entire episode. We discuss the intersections between queer and refugee issues, with the Australian government’s policies such as “offshore processing” of asylum seekers harming refugees as a whole, but queer refugees in particular. We also read a letter from a queer refugee, discuss refugee activism and the importance of individual stories in changing attitudes, violence and/or the threat of violence preventing people’s free movement around the world, Emma Goldman’s ‘Patriotism: A Menace to Liberty’, and punk rock music and social change.

This time we’re joined by Jess Ison, editor of the soon-to-be released book To the Exclusion Of All Others: Queers Questioning Gay Marriage. We’re also joined by Stevie from Team Earthling. Jess discusses the book and how she came to this position of being pro-queer but anti-same sex (and other) marriage. This includes some groups being left out of the same-sex marriage campaign, such as trans people. Brazil and Mexico both have same-sex marriage but have the most reported killings of trans people. Similarly, England and Wales have same-sex marriage and have seen a drop in homophobic crime but a rise in transphobic crime. We also discuss: the relationship between cops and queer people, the widespread support for same-sex marriage in the queer community but the growing critique from within the queer movement, Julia Gillard’s new position on same-sex marriage now she’s out of office, and the article ‘Marriage Will Never Set Us Free’ by Dean Spade & Craig Willse. We also bring you more from the ICAS conference – we play some of Curtis Redd’s talk ‘Bodies, Beats and Bashing: History Telling of Homophobic Violence’. This talk critiques the This Is Oz campaign and also makes some links between the oppression of queer people and non-human animals. You can listen to this entire talk with a Q and A with Curtis and Jess here.

You can join the Facebook group To the Exclusion of all Others and/or follow @ToTheExclusion on Twitter to be notified when the book is out.

In this one Nick is flying (Han) solo, or at least without Katie. He is joined by Nicole, one of the organisers from the Perth One Billion Rising event, for the entire episode. One Billion Rising is a global event that aims to have ‘one billion women releasing their stories, dancing and speaking at the places where they need justice, where they need an end to violence against women and girls’. You can find your closest One Billion Rising event here.

This episode covers a lack of media attention given to these issues, a discussion on some criticisms of the One Billion Rising movement, this year’s focus on Indigenous and disabled victims of violence, art and social change, slut shaming, rape culture, why the Perth event is open to everyone and has all vegan food, Reclaim the Night, and the movement against female genital mutilation. You can hear our episode that covered last year’s One Billion Rising event here.

Update: we discuss some of our experiences at our local One Billion Rising event and play some talks from it on our 47th episode.
