For this last episode of Trans-mission, Nate Reid is joined by Gem, who among other things works with Genderqueer Australia. Very interesting to hear Gem talk about the definitions of Gender queer and the issue of ‘not being trans enough’ for either the community or to get the right medical treatment. Another fascinating personal and yet political story.

In 2012, the IDAHO (International Day Against HOmophbia and transphobia) flashmob was photographed by Travis De Jonk and posted on the website SameSame.com
The theme this year was balloons, and the organiser picked green ones to signify genderqueer people who are discriminated against.
The participants joined hands at Flinders street station, and walked through the city to their destination, the Melbourne Library, where they released the balloons.
This gallery is of interstate peeps who have given permission for their images to be used on the website.
Thanks to all contributors!
