Queer Health in Queensland

Brisbane Free University is delighted to present a panel discussion: Queer Health in Queensland. In this conversation we hope to share knowledge of needs and services, and the gaps between the two.

Where: Carpark under the Westpac Bank, 89-91 Boundary St, West End.

When: Wednesday 18th November, 2015, 6:30pm – 8:30pm.

There will be ample discussion time. If anyone has questions or points that you would like raised anonymously, please email them to brisbanefreeuniversity@gmail.com

Our speakers for the evening:

Laura McLeod
Originally hailing from the streets of Brisbane, Laura Mcleod is a provisionally registered Clinical Psychologist studying at James Cook University, Cairns. Her previous research has focused on the complex topic of communicating sexual consent, causing no end of interesting banter/awkward coughing at polite dinner parties. Current her research is focused on the helpful and unhelpful experiences of transgender and non-binary clients seeking psychological support in rural and remote areas of Queensland. Previous research indicates that there is a growing number of people seeking support for non-binary gender identification and a lack of supportive practice in the psychological community.

Brett Mooney
Brett says: I am Murray Islander from the Torres Straits, I have live here in Brisbane for 12 years, 10 of which I have spent working for the 2Spirits Program. 2Spirits delivers SexualHealth Promotion to Gay Men, Bisexual Men, and Sister Girls throughout the state of Queensland. In my spare time I enjoy maintaining my culture and collecting or creating opportunistic moments.

Miranda Sparks
Miranda Sparks is a radio presenter, web author, comedian, poet, playwright and entertainer from the outer suburbs of Brisbane. She is a passionate transgender activist and will engage in conversation at every opportunity presented.

As always, Brisbane Free University is completely free and open to all.
