This show is created and produced on the stolen lands of the Wurundjeri and Boonwurrung people of the Kulin Nation. We pay respect to Elders, past, present, and emerging, and acknowledge the continued resilience of First Nation peoples in the face of ongoing colonisation and settlement. We acknowledge sovereignty was never ceded, and a treaty was never signed.

3CR broadcasts from the stolen lands of the Kulin Nation.  Sovereignty was never ceded.

Interviews with Alastair Lawrie, Ricki Spencer and Todd Fernando.

Alastair Lawrie discusses the Morrison Government's broken promise to legislate to protect LGBTIQ students in religious schools, religious privilege and the Religious Discrimination Bill and One Nation's Education [Parental Rights] Bill in New South Wales.

Ricki Spencer discusses the multitude of project work, advocacy and activism they are undertaking to cause systemic and inclusive social change for gender diverse people and people living with disabilities.

Commissioner Todd Fernando gives a broad ranging interview about the Fab Jab campaign to get queer folks vaccinated, their work as Victorian Commissioner for LGBTIQ Communities and intersections with queerness and Aboriginality.
