What issues matter to you most?

I think at the moment, I think we need to have more visibility for trans people, cos that’s really not being acknowledged in the media or anywhere at all. And the portrayals that we get are really terrible, so I think we need to focus on telling everyone “this is a thing, this is what it is,” and all of the confusion will hopefully dissipate and all those people will be able to have a much easier time, because unemployment and suicide is so high among that group, and the percentages that we’re given of those people who are that are so small, and I think it’s actually a lot bigger than what we know.

At what age did you start to become aware of your sexuality, and how did you know?

Probably like… in primary school, I think I started to realise that.. maybe not that early, but I didn’t differentiate feelings I had for different people, I was sort of like “okay, that’s fine”, and then probably… at about 17, I was like “wait - I wanna kiss boys. Fuck. Shit.” and then i started dating a boy in my high school who was in my dad’s class, and he didn’t know about this, and I was like “oh, er, by the way… this is my boyfriend”.

What do you think the future holds for people who identify as queer?

I think it depends where they are - I think in places where there is a sense of social justice and where legislation is moving forward, I think it will continue to get better. In other places, I hope it will get better, but I’m not sure. In developing nations where there’s still a lot of stigma or where they have a lot of other issues to work out first, I hope it will get better.

What issues matter to you most? (economic, political, etc)

I’d say queer issues matter to me a lot, particularly in relation to youth mental health and youth homelessness, all things like that. Mainly youth stuff, because I am one, so i see the effect of that more than anything else.

Today I made a new friend (hekateis!!)  and got to continue my LGBTQ Project. Alas, my internet is pooping itself so these photos won’t be up tonight, but here’s a sneak! They’re very nice, I think, and will be up when my internet isn’t poops.

This is for my overseas buds who won’t be able to find a copy at Mag Nation (unless u have a very good local magazine store). Just some lil pics and quotes and some artistic bullshit from my mouth. Either way, pleased w myself.

The project is now in a magazine! Pick one up in store if you live in Australia, or online if you’re overseas (I think).

hi, friends!

i’m getting back into this project after a brief holiday, and i’m thinking of changing up the questions & i was wondering what you’d like to know about the subjects! i have some ideas but input from the people is what i am after.

question mark?

When I started this project, it wasn’t just for me, it was for everything. That’s why I am allowing a link to download the entire book for you to read, for free! 

The book has the full interviews as well as the photos, so if you wanted to read more answers from everyone, then you definitely can.

Also: view the pages in single view, because if you put them in double, they’ll show the wrong photos with the interview. 

Yay!

click here to download it, and I really hope you like it!

Hey, friends!
Dean Beck from Joy FM has been in contact with me today, and tomorrow night on his show I’ll be talking about this project. If you live in Melbourne, have a listen! His show is between 9 and 11, and I’m unsure what time I’ll be on, but why not listen to the whole thing! You may learn something new.
I’ll also have two of the subjects from this blog with me (unconfirmed) so it’s a heaps good chance to have a listen about what we’re all about!
Also, I hit 100 followers today! Thanks tonnes for all your support!
