Public screening of short films made by LGBTIQA+ Tasmanian students on the topic of: Growing up Queer in Tasmania and Gender and Sexuality

Call Me By My Name
In celebration of IDAHOBIT 2022, come and watch two short films that account for the collective experience of Tasmanian students. The films will be screened for the first time to a public audience. They are approx. 8 min each in duration and speak to the commonly asked questions of educators, service providers and parents. There will also be a short film focused on one young person’s experience.
Following the screening there will be a panel comprised of students who participated in the film, moderated by Xris Reardon the lead LGBTIQA+ school’s inclusion officer for Working It Out.
The films are intended to be used as resources for teacher education in schools (in Tasmania). Money raised is to help pay for further editing of individual narratives and the creation of a school resource.
Watch, listen and learn from the participants.

At the University of Tasmania we are working hard towards creating a place where all of us, no matter how we identify, feel valued, respected and safe. It is well known that when we can be our full selves, when we can be authentic and open about who we are, we are at our best. In turn, we are then more productive, feel happier, and have greater levels of loyalty and engagement. Read more about our Inclusion, Diversity and Equity Principles here
