Fighting for trans liberation with Priya 

Bhenji Ra put it best when she said ‘what is visibility without protection? a trap’. In this segment we explore the fight for trans liberation with a focus on trans peoples' interactions with the colonial carceral industry in so-called Australia, troubling the definitions of visibility, protection, resistance and liberation under a violent status quo. What does it mean to lean into the connection between trans liberation and prison abolition, to imagine care, community and trans futures otherwise? Tune in for the low down from solitary to the front line.

This segment was programmed collaboratively by Priya, who does not have lived experience of incarceration, and their dear friend who is a trans woman currently within the Victorian prison system. 

Content note: The conversations during this hour are necessarily tough listening. They show the brutal reality of life for trans women subjected to the violence of the prison system, and as such contain discussion of transphobia, physical and sexual violence, racism, and discrimination.
