Tranby has always been a safe, inclusive and supportive space for Queer Blak Mob. Today, we want to expand that safe cultural space by sharing yarns about Aboriginality, Queerness, creativity, and well-being by speaking outLOUD.
In Tranby’s first podcast, run by BLACKBOOKS, outLOUD provides a platform for our First Nations LGBTQIA+SB community members, storytellers, poets, song writers, writers and creatives to step up and share what is important and gives meaning in their lives and their practice. Since its launch in 2022 the podcast has featured some deadly community voices including emerging artists like Elijah Manis (), the 2022 Young NAIDOC Person of the Year, and established artists like Melissa Lucashenko, an award winning writer of Goorie and European heritage.
We are committed to inviting and engaging across the diversity of First Nations LGBTQIA+SB Peoples and Communities. Listen to the podcast here.
The next phase of the project is working with the Redfern based BlaQ Aboriginal Corporation to produce a podcast series with First Nations LGBTQIA+ Elders scheduled for release in December 2022. To follow the outLOUD journey check out our social media podcast page.
