Thanks to Zoe for alerting me to this. I’ve reproduced below the news story from Shine SA.
South Australian Rainbow Advocacy Alliance and South Australian Department of Human Services, April 2020
17 May is IDAHOBIT – the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexphobia and Transphobia. IDAHOBIT’s theme for 2020 is “Breaking the Silence”, and that’s precisely what we’re going to do!
Although we might not be able to meet together in person to recognise this important date due to COVID-19, the South Australian Department of Human Services and the South Australian Rainbow Advocacy Alliance have joined together to host a special online event for the South Australian LGBTIQ+ community via Zoom.
Join us on Sunday 17 May for a Q&A session featuring LGBTIQ+ people from several diverse backgrounds as we discuss what “Breaking the Silence” means for our rainbow communities.
The Q&A session will feature:
- Zac Cannell, TransMasc SA & transgender community leader
- Sarah K Reece, LGBTIQ+ disability advocate
- Neha Madhok, Democracy in Colour
We are also delighted to welcome Michelle Lensink MLC, Minister for Human Services, to speak with us at the event, as well as Jason Tuazon-McCheyne (founder of The Equality Project) to tell us about the Better Together LGBTIQ+ conference that is coming to Adelaide in 2021.
SARAA acknowledges the Kaurna people as the traditional custodians of the Adelaide Plains. We also acknowledge other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their continued connection to their lands throughout Australia.
How can I submit a question for the Q&A session?
Questions can be submitted via Zoom during the event, or you can submit a question in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
How do I join the webinar?

Do I need to be part of the LGBTIQ+ community to attend?
Not at all! Allies are welcome to join us and learn more from our amazing speakers!
