The art of getting lost, caring for Trans and Autistic young people, and aid for Gaza

Monday, 26 February 2024 - 7:00am to 8:30am

Welcome back to Monday Breakfast. This week Rob and Grace bring you the following: 

Jan Bartlett of Tuesday Hometime speaking with Ken Davies, International project officer Union Aid Abroad APHEDA, about the partnership between APHEDA and Palestine, and aid provision for Gaza, West bank, and Lebanon.

We also heard 

Jan Bartlett's conversation with activist David Burgess who together with his friend Will Sanders painted NO WAR in the Opera House sail in 2003. You can catch more great content from Jan Bartlett on the Tuesday Hometime show from 4 - 6pm. 

Grace interviews Stephen Dobson, dean of the School of Education and the Arts at Central Queensland University, discussing his recent article on The Conversation about the art of 'getting lost', how it can be antidote to capitalism.

Our final segment is dedicated to Nex Benedict, a 16-year-old non-binary child who died last week following a brutal, transphobic assault in the halls of their own school. In the wake of their death, we as a community and a society must mourn for those lost to transphobic violence across the globe and reflect on how we can protect Queer and Trans youth to ensure they live full lives and become Queer and Trans elders. Late last week Rob spoke with Annette Brömdal, co-author of the review titled: ‘Supporting the health and wellbeing of trans autistic school-aged youth: a systematic literature review’. Annette Brömdal is an Associate Professor at the University of Southern Queensland. Their research interests fall within the areas of bodies, gender and sexuality in educational settings and healthcare services, specifically associated with critical trans studies.
