The LGBTI festival season around Australia is almost coming to an end, with Brisbane holding Big Gay Day and Daylesford’s ChillOut festivals happening last weekend. However, the Melbourne Queer Film Festival was just launched this week, and in our latest edition, we had a chat with the director of one of its standout films, Zoe.Misplaced.
In other news, we provide the latest news and developments in HIV treatments, chat to some former high school students who attended last year’s Same Sex Formal in Melbourne (the only one of its kind in Australia), have an exclusive interview with Brian Henson – the son of the late Jim Henson – who is bringing his latest show to Australia for the major cities’ comedy festivals – and much more.
Finally, our opinion pages tackles the ongoing debate of the LGBTI acronym and the president of OII Australia takes the time to explain what it’s like to be intersex and the issues they face.
