Queer Life Stories
Podcast: Queer Life Stories
Host: Garry Wakefield
Category: Society and Culture, Documentary
First Episode: 2019
Queer Life Stories is about sharing the lived experiences of queer people. Our first focus will be on Tasmania, Australia before exploring the Australian mainland and hopefully some international stories. Tasmania has had a turbulent history of LGBTIQ+ rights being the last Australian state to decriminalise homosexuality in 1997, 25 years after the first Australian state in 1972. Tasmania went on to become a progressive gay rights state sharing early support of marriage equality. Queer Life Stories will be talking to people that identify across the LGBTIQ+ spectrum and allies to capture the histories that might otherwise be lost and forgotten.
