Celebrate Stonewall 2018
After Yes: Reviving the spirit of Stonewall in Australia and Around the Globe

Are you over the wedding cakes and the corporate floats? Were you inspired by 78ers marching in Mardi Gras and their vision of liberation? Hear from a diverse panel of speakers who’ll provide a global sweep of the challenges faced by LGBTIQ people today, explore solutions and chart opportunities for resistance and solidarity.

- Sally Goldner: community radio presenter, bi and trans advocate
- Josh Mason: coordinates the blog LGBTIQ punk stories and is a veteran of disciplined counter-organising to stop Nazis, bigots and other unsavoury types in Melbourne
- Sara Niner: anthropologist and expert in gender politics on lesbian, bi and trans oppression in Timor-Leste
- Lisa Farrell: represents Radical Women in the Indigenous Social Justice Association and takes pride in having out-organised the World Congress of Families in 2014

Chaired by Alison Thorne: Veteran queer liberationist and union delegate who edits the Freedom Socialist Organizer

Honoring May Day
What will it really take to Change the Rules?

When Sally McManus, as new ACTU secretary, said that she has no problem with workers breaking laws that are unjust, workers sat up at the ready. But the business world went ballistic, and the ACTU quickly retreated, switching its message from “break bad laws” to “change the rules.”

The argument underpinning the ACTU's Change the Rules campaign is that the rules, once fair, are now broken, and workers need to pressure parliamentarians to improve them. What do women workers, who have been waiting for equal pay for over 100 years, think about this? What about unionists who remember the militant strikes that won the conditions we're now losing?

Join Radical Women for this Sunday Session honouring May Day. Let's talk about what it will take to change the rules.
