‘Living and Loving in Diversity’ was launched this Friday at the Australian GLBTIQ Multicultural Council’s national conference. It is an honour to be part of a book that contains writing from so many amazing queer writers. I read an excerpt of my piece, ‘My Helmet’, at the launch, and had the opportunity to sign books for the first time in my life. It was very thrilling!
My essay about my complex relationship with my hair (and its links to ethnicity, religion and trauma) has been published in the Australian GLBTIQ Multicultural Council’s amazing book, Living and Loving in Diversity: An anthology of Australian multicultural queer adventures. The book was launched on 21 September at St Kilda Town Hall.
