E-book of the month
Hodge, D. (2015). Colouring the Rainbow : Blak Queer and Trans Perspectives: Life Stories and Essays by First Nations People of Australia. Wakefield Press.
This book uncovers the often hidden world of Queer and Trans Blak Australia and tells it like it is. Twenty-two First Nations people reveal their inner reflections and outlooks on family and culture, identity and respect, homophobia, transphobia, racism and decolonisation, activism, art, performance and more, through life stories and essays. The contributors to this ground-breaking book not only record the continuing relevance of traditional culture and practices, they also explain the emergence of homonormativity within the context of contemporary settler colonialism. ‘Colouring the Rainbow’ is a real, searing and celebratory exploration of modern culture in post-apology Australia.
