Queer Kids, Then & Now

A panel discussion and archival slideshow about growing up LGBTIQ: what has changed since the 1990s?

Featuring speakers from Minus18 and researchers investigating how growing up LGBTQIA+ has changed over time (Rob Cover [UWA], Daniel Marshall [Deakin], Mary Lou Rasmussen [ANU], Benjamin Hegarty [Deakin] and Geraldine Fela [Monash]) this panel discussion will explore the ways growing up LGBTQIA+ has changed in Australia.

With the rise of online culture and social media, are communities and forms of support different for young people growing up LGBTQIA+ today compared with young people growing up 20 or 30 years earlier? How has sex education changed in schools? What was it like to 'come out' in the 1990s compared to today? How has dating changed? Whilst many things may have changed, what experiences are shared amongst the LGBTQIA+ community, regardless of age?

This will be an exciting opportunity to hear about current research and perspectives exploring these issues, and to view archival images that capture the experiences of young people growing up queer in the 1990s and the years that followed. Panel members will discuss: 'What was it like to be a queer young person growing up in the 1990s, and what is it like to be a queer young person growing up today?' After the discussion, there will be a Q&A session with questions from the audience. Share your thoughts on the important issues for LGBTQIA+ young people when you were growing up or in your experience of growing up today. Reflect on the past and consider the future at this innovative discussion event.
