It’s been a big year for many in our communities. We’ve seen our first legal same gender marriages across Australia, and, with that, the end of forced divorce (in most states and territories) for transgender people wishing to change the gender on their birth certificate. But with the good comes the bad, and this year …

This year was an incredibly tough one for so many of us. Here in Australia, unprecedented levels of homophobia and transphobia, brought on by an unprecedented postal survey, made this year much more difficult than perhaps it should’ve been. Many of us will be celebrating as we move into 2018, including those of us who …

For this issue, our models were transgender and non-binary, and our product included a lot of latex (thanks Max …

NOTE: During this event, we had some significant audio issues and the space wasn’t equipped for the style of event we were expecting. There was significant disappointment, and some hurt, among our attendees and our volunteers. Below is a statement released by Young Henrys following the event. We will work extra hard to ensure our next Sydney get-together provides a safe, welcoming space and we …
