Connecting with LGBTI elders through dance
As part of the Victorian Seniors Festival in October 2016, more than 100 LGBTI Elders were brought together at an event coordinated by Alice’s Garage and All the Queens Men. In a show of support, a range of Commissioners, regulators and advocates showed their organisations’ LGBTI inclusiveness by putting their dance moves on show.
Our own Rae Lamb was the only Commonwealth Commissioner who attended and she joined her state counterparts in this fun event. A movie about the event and dancing can be found here
The film will be used to raise awareness of the Tango Project which documents LGBTI elders’ experiences of abuse and discrimination.
