Being Asexual – Jess’s LGBTQ* Interview

I had the pleasure of interviewing the lovely and awesome Jess on her experiences for the first interview this year. She has some super accurate and interesting ideas on the four types of attraction and the different kinds of asexuality that exist that I’ll admit, I have never considered before. The thing I loved most about this interview was the way in which Jess was able to explain her experiences prompting me to consider my own sexuality in relation, questioning the attraction I feel towards certain people, while others fall flat. She accentuates the intensity that a relationship can have without the often presumed assumption that it must involve sexual relations. I really recommend watching this interview and sharing it. I’m really quite proud of Jess.

Because We Are Diverse – A Presentation

Because We Are Diverse TitleSo in December last year I did a presentation on the Because We Are Diverse project. It lasted for about 30 mins and briefly covered everything I had learned over the past year. From the very amazing talents of Bunny Bennett, Joseph Harwood and Robyn Archer to Marriage Equality, homophobia, transgenderism and the many identities there are. The presentation required me to be quite personal and honest about my experiences, something I was incredibly nervous to do in front of family, friends, peers and teachers. I hadn’t revealed much of what was said to them before. In the end it turns out that I shouldn’t have worried. The audience were so open minded and recipient to all the issues and ideas I presented. You can probably see me lose my head at the end when I realised the audience were giving me a standing ovation. The support for this project was overwhelming (as I’ve already said a dozen times) and I could not have asked for a better response. Truly can’t believe it. Thank you to all who follow this blog and the project. You. Are. Amazing. Xx

Outing Alyce – LGBTQ Interview

The last of the interviews! This one took me a while to edit and finalize but I’m so glad it’s finally ready to be viewed. Alyce was unfortunately outed at her Catholic high school in her last year. As school captain, she was told to watch that her actions do not confirm any rumours, essentially asking her to pretend and stay closeted. As we talked more, she revealed that she encountered some severe ignorance and hatred once while shopping a couple years ago. As I’ve never had this particular experience, I admit, it’s made me a little nervous in public. I’m not sure what I would do if the same happened to me.
