Queer families: Documenting stories of adversity, diversity and belonging

One of the distressing consequences of the marriage equality survey was the reminder that some people view queer sexuality and family life as incommensurable. Yet the marriage debate also prompted the documentation and dissemination of highly moving stories of queer belonging within Australian families. Associate Professor Christy Newman will review a number of qualitative research studies conducted at CSRH in which LGBTQ+ participants provided rich accounts of what family means to them and how they have overcome continuing prejudices to forge a sense of resilience and belonging in the context of family life.

With introduction by The Hon Michael Kirby AC CMG and moderated by journalist and writer Amy Coopes.
