Panel Discussion: Exploring contemporary issues challenging LGBTQI+ people

Thursday 19 November, 6pm-7.30pm | Woolnough Lecture Theatre


Join us to hear different perspectives on issues of concern to the LGBTQI+ community. Chaired by Liberty Cramer, who is Chair of UWA’s LGBTIQA+ Working Group, presentations will be followed by a panel discussion.

Presenters include:

Anna Kimpton, Head of UWA Pride Department in the Student Guild. Anna’s presentation provides a current perspective on the use of language and identity terms in Australian culture to stigmatise the LGBTQIA+ community.

Dr John Terry, Clinical Director of UWA Medical Centre. A GP for over 25 years Dr John Terry has worked in Psychiatry, Travel and Emergency Medicine. His practice has afforded extensive experience in working with health challenges of the people of the LGBTQI+ community.

Aidan Ricciardo, Lecturer in the UWA Law School with interests in the intersection between evidence law and health/medicine. Aidan's presentation critically explores the law of bodily autonomy as it affects trans and intersex young people, providing an account of how it has changed over time and how it might reform further in the future.

June Lowe, Board member GRAI (GLBTI Rights in Ageing Inc). June will discuss ‘The invisibility conundrum’; invisibility that bedevils the life experience of LGBTI + elders.
