Michele Vescio speaks with Niveen Abdelatty, a queer Muslim woman of colour and a politically charged DJ and musician, about her queer history through the lens of intersectionality and disidentification; we also unpack discussions on decolonising information and education in the context of queer history within broad LGBTIQA+ identities and communities.
Queering the Air presents critically engaged commentary from a mix of trans, genderqueer, gender diverse, bisexual, pansexual, lesbian, gay, queer, and intersex perspectives.
Each week's show features a fresh feast of ideas, interviews, news, histories, arts, and discussion with an anti-racist, feminist, and anti-capitalist bent. We have a particular interest in the intersection of queerness with other experiences of marginalisation.
In 2015, the collective created We Weren't Born Yesterday, a series exploring queer heritage, vocabulary and intergenerational connections in Arab, Chinese, Vietnamese, and Indian communities in Australia. Read more and listen.
