THE MEDICAL PINK DOLLAR
12pm – 1pm
An ageing HIV+ population and an unreliable aged care sector, the prohibitive cost of trans surgeries and a lack of informed care, profiteering by the IVF industry, and forced surgeries on intersex people: the  LGBTQI+ has serious bones to pick with the medical industrial complex. Can we combine forces to
fight back?
Featuring Dr. Vanessa Lee, Dr. Nicole Vincent, Jax Jacki Brown, Paul Kidd and more

POVO: ON CLASS AND COMMUNITY

LGBTQI+ people are more likely to live in poverty, but the class divide also has the ability to divide us. Are we leaving people behind or can the community transcend class?
Moderated by Dr. Elizabeth Humphrys, with panel to be announced

DEATH OF THE GAY BAR

Cultural leaders explore the history and future of LGBTQI+ space(s): with ‘community’ increasingly being sought online and with gay venues being shut down – can queer nightlife survive or is the party fading?
