Welcome to one of our personal favourites - the annual Youth Issue. Inside, we hear from the next generation of LGBT+ change-makers who speak about the issues that matter to them.
There’s an inspiring photo piece on the recent School Strikes For Climate Change by the wonderful Babs Daly who also captured the cover image. We look at an LGBT+ asylum seeker who entered the Direct Provision system at age 13 and there’s an essential piece on the rising numbers of homeless LGBT+ youth.
We talk about the need for alcohol-free spaces for younger LGBT+ folk while inside you’ll also find the results of the EMIS survey to improve the health of gay, bi and MSM. On the entertainment side, we have interviews with comedian Hannah Gadsby, the creators of the startling theatre show Faultline, and there’s a fun introduction to the next generation of drag artists. With the youth of this country demanding change, we can rest assured that if the contributors to this issue are leading the charge, the status quo is about to get a jolt. Enjoy.
