tell your story - change the world!
Hi all... Can you help let others know about this weekend's workshop - via direct e:mail, phone call, f2f or via your social media networks?
I'm thinking we should move along in workshopping the following:
- themes (currently health, employment, education, safety)
- dramatic form (currently an A4 booklet or book, several short films, possibly some posters)
- scripts or plans for each 'project'
- teams who are committed to working…

What's news? Who is thinking about who they're going to bring to the Trans World Cafe on the 15th November? Family members or work colleagues that just don't quite get it? Gender-questioning friends with too many questions? We'll be exploring 3 issues/ideas put forth by community members... along the lines of 'when have you felt at home with yourself?'. Please let us know you have any ideas for questions?
And come along to the next workshop on the 7th November when we'll be polishing…Continue

We had a lovely Sunday arvo workshop last week, stirred by a challenge to write a couple of sentences on a turning point, a weird/funny experience/memory of gender, a mentor or an antagonist who you ended up learning something from. The homework task was to distill this story into a couple of 'locked off sentences with an accompanying image in order to upload to our new webspace at www.storiesbeyondgender.com We set everybody up with…Continue

So group members Sam, Evelyn, Hayley and I did a road trip down to Mt. Gambier last weekend to meet the community. A trans/queer/gender-questioning group gather at the excellent Metro Cafe (more of a bar/restaurant/gourmet bakery IMHO) every Monday night. Quite a few were keen to hear more about sharing stories #beyondgender. Give them a shout on their Facebook group here.
On Sunday we spread out our creativity…Continue

Digital Storytelling workshops often start with a kind of warm and fuzzy story circle… despite mutual awkwardness it’s an important step in building trust.
We often look at some sample stories, like ‘Blue for Boys? Pink for Girls?’ and…Continue

It seems, whether you're into marriage or not, that people are slowly recognising that law reform might have positive social consequences BEYOND marriage... like increasing acceptance of GLBTQI people and their families.

Walking the Talk
So I figured it was time! Some weeks ago I managed to secure an appointment with the very busy Federal Liberal member for Boothby, Andrew Southcott. We met today... These are some of my thoughts...
Andrew (Shadow Parliamentary Secretary for Primary Healthcare) was quick to establish that ‘this issue is a difficult one for the Liberal Party and for me personally’ ...but he nevertheless made an effort…
Pretty nervous this morning as I upload the latest Digital Story and start the process of circulating it online... In my head I replay the many voices of concern (both real and imagined) about whether I’m exposing my daughter too much... or in some way ‘dumping her in it’...

On Saturday, my girlfriend and I got (illegally) ‘married’ in a…
After lots of discussion with members, we've made some changes on the site!
The 'groups' and 'forums' areas have been canned... and we've reintroduced the 'blogs' area. We'll use this space to do a round up of activities and posts by members across the various online spaces RFT now inhabits. If you haven't checked them out yet, here they are:
