I had my on like twenty six sides so good mix of listings and buyers. I definitely worked with a lot of first-time homebuyers but i learned so much Twenty six transactions will change you as a person really a really crazy. Twenty six transactions with a four months old or six month old at home and three-year-old. She obviously had the baby in the did the Like around christmas time. I guess it was twenty. Nineteen not i was pregnant with our little girl and gas twenty twenty. I was pregnant like on a summer. Like the worst time and like a beached whale.

I work with them now and it was cute. They like bought my daughter a little onesie and stuff and they were excited. So i mean think about that listen. We can't even cattle prod. We can't even cattle prods. Some of our agents to get out of bed on time in the morning and you like c section two days astor outlook go when we hear like monroe stories. And they're in the hospital doing the all like i just. I love it. Because i felt like a a mental image of it.

"I live in New Orleans and wanted to escape my little world down. There remind myself life does exist outside the city so booked tickets to New York. One of my best friends moved there. This friend and I had top surgery together. We drove to Florida to the same chest masculinization surgery within a few days of each other. It took years of late night talks with radical. Dykes inquiries to get to that moment. I can go into a coffee shop and actually pick up the cup with my mouth and carry it to my table but then that becomes almost more difficult. Because of the I couldn't stop listening to this conversation between Judith Butler into Nora Taylor and artists and disability rights activist. The discomfort causes when I do things with body parts. That aren't necessarily what we assume that. Therefore that seems to be even more Hard for people to to deal with. I was terrified and thrilled about treating my milk. Ducts like medical waste a few transmit. I know we're happy with their chest from this doctor in Miami. It's the only surgery he does and it's popular. He flattens chest five times a day three days a week. I wish I could have donated my chest to my favorite drag queen but my surgeon had a response like Lucille blue on arrested development. I don't understand the question and I won't respond the night before my nip took though I actually felt like a pretty terrible misogynist. Such a failed feminist. I was cutting up my own female body but I have to remind myself that living as default feminine is not helping other women ruminating in self torture and loathing is not an inspiring feminists strategy. It is a strange feeling to desire masculinity in two thousand twenty who wants to be a man as a kid and the nineties. When I would ask the boy's toy in the McDonald's drive-thru I'd watch my mom's worrying is lingering on me in the rear view Mir when I told her. I wish I was a boy. She just stared and said why maybe her gut response was feeling rejected. Like I was rejecting her as a woman as a role model did she. Also worry I would be like some other unhealthy pathetic men in her life. But I don't want to be a solitary depressed. Nobody knows trouble like I do kind of man alone in my office until four. Am I feel like even if I wanted to fully transition to be a man? It's not possible I could only be a man who was raised as a girl survived middle school because of riot girl a man who almost everyone reads as a huge lesbian. And what a privilege right. Now I'm a FAG lesbian separatist visiting New York City. I am reluctant to say I'm non binary it doesn't feel like the category that holds space hedge lists like leftovers. It doesn't exist without referencing. What it isn't saying it out loud feels like. I'm just saying sorry not that one. Thanks I get lost in my head breaking down with Gender Queer even means and wondering who doesn't fit that category I want to feel desirable by desire is formed through refraction of things ideas. I prefer this phrasing to I constantly. Compare myself to everyone around me. That Tuesday in New Orleans is a day for ritually drug. Induced shape shifting. This is the culmination day for Catholic Feasting Public. Masking costuming nudity. Young and old buddies are on full display. I won't even call it gender bending because it's beyond the category of gender. It's a riot bursting with sound and deep bright shiny colors historic struggles over who is allowed to parade.

My friend was scheduled to get Andrew Del testosterone cream a gift from the gay. God's I've debated taking testosterone shots before and put it off but Andrew. Del Isn't as strong as the shots. Also you can actually spread testosterone through skin contact after applying. I'm a sucker for ceremonial bonding. On Tuesday. The gift of Andro Joe was supposed to be placed in our hands survey die but as the patriarchal bureaucratic garbage world. That we live in would have it. There was a weird insurance issue. Oh my God this number. They have listed on their website despite having multiple credit cards. We couldn't get the hormones so our afternoon tea party was put on hold but I wondered if we had to be the ANDRO GEL. We wanted to see in the world. What does that mean exactly? We had the entire city of New York and burning hearts. I couldn't be satisfied with just a slice this afternoon. No matter how cheap and delicious we decided to have a ceremony to make us really feel like those small revolutionary minded parades. Were a state of mind. I will keep repeating feminist mantras Mardi gras hastings categorized as a figure out. What the Fuck works for me? We bought a lottery ticket. Wrote things down Shared Judith. Butler quotes made a list of qualities within ourselves and types of men. We WANNA burn. We tried to peel back the dulling sensors in talk fast and loud and publicly about things. You want to do how we want to be in the world. We tried to burn our list. But it took awhile. It was windy and literally freezing. It was another forest metaphor and this Judith. Butler quote is still vibrating in my head but they use their anus for or what they allow their anus to be used for. Well that one but really this one. What can embody do we usually ask you know what is a body. Or what is the ideal form of a body or But what can a body do is is a different question?

How can you want to be something you already? Our desire implies deficiency want implies want to admit that what makes women like me transsexual identity but desire is to admit just how much transition takes place in the waiting rooms of wanting things this out loud. My eyes turned to flames. Ignited by yet resigned to Trans Desire. The idea of men becoming women thrills Lesbian History archivist and me. Even though physically. I'm moving in a different direction. I cut my tits off and right now. I'm actively flirting with the idea of rubbing so-called male hormones all over my body. I wonder how thoroughly hi do.

There's going to be an opt to show off this episode. We're actually GONNA take this week off completely but then we got these amazing interview so we decided to do this. Episode about our officers will be back to normal as of next week. Let's get it Mardi gras and has just wrapped up and as any good Political event should be wasn't without its controversy. Today we're joined by Alex Officer Gentle intense from the Department of Home Affairs a Queer activist group based in Sydney Alex. Thanks so much joining us. Thank you for having me on the shy away. At least three protesters from your group were removed from the parade on Saturday night after conducting a peaceful protests in front of the Liberal Party. Floats firstly. What exactly what are you protesting and were any of you actually arrested. Yeah so the Department of affairs was in the Mardi gras protesting the presence of the Liberal Party float primarily to bring attention to the liberal. Party's plans to celebrate the two hundred and fifty invasion of captain coke coming into Botany Bay. Something called the encounters tool which they're doing with the Maritime Museum which I'm sure you've heard of is the Circumnavigation OF AUSTRALIA THE LOSE my mind sitting in marketing department thinking that that's a good idea. Yeah so correct me. If I'm wrong with literally creating a replica of the endeavour an ENCYC- Never Getting Australia just to remind everyone. Say the Endeavour replica exists already built in the nineties. sits at the Maritime Museum in Dialing Haba Child I have memories of going on the excursions Russians Yeah so it sits there. A lot of tourists get on board and a LOT OF STUDENTS. Young students get onboard. So they're planning on Yeah circumnavigating around Australia to commemorate the two hundred and fifty years since Since Cook landed. Which of course is funny because that circumnavigation never happened. Yeah very good thing to be protesting. Then yeah we believe so. Yeah and so many of you arrested. Yeah so three of us were arrested. We were taken through the VIP area and detained underneath the grandstand though particularly heavy. Handed with one of us at bruises on their So we were charged with obstruction. That it was quite funny. They didn't really know Josh Straight. Yeah pretty much so I got obstruction of traffic. Someone else. One of US got Breaching the pay. We'll give him move on orders so they detained us for about ten minutes and then we had to leave. The area took our detail so receive fines ensure editor. I'm sure you'll have civil. People put their hand up to help you cover. Those fines added. They did let several people continue to March in. Yes so for the rest of the parade going quite amazing on the footage which which the Department of Home Affairs. Gotten some very good coverage. Way You'd see the tend to big signs saying turn back the waves followed by deliver flight. Which I and the thing that I like about it. The mindset those people saying Oh that's the point of monographs at ease actually act very much. Yeah but also a lot of people have been saying I agree with the spirit in which it was done was quite a funny sort of humorous way of protesting which Mardi Gras has a strong history of doing play. Those images of Fred. Nile's head on a plate in in the nineties and that sort of thing is it's always been very much pro protests about as a community does hasn't been of a sense of humor about it which I thought Department of Home Affairs a very good job of so it's important to us that what we do is perform give camp and it satirical and it's funny. Yeah and it's fun. It's absolutely and that's what point were you there from the start of the parade. Yeah well there during the marshalling time which was really fun. That's a really beautiful time pot of Monty Gratin. If any of you have have parade but seeing all the groups walking around everyone's excited and I was there from the beginning. Yeah did you notice any like the attendees like as you protesting connecting with the message that you were putting out there? We had a few funny moments so we had a few different elements that that was the Department of phase will wearing blue coveralls which are opening up. And we think it's very apparent that Where a satirical group office outback's but a Lotta people. Don't get it straight away okay. So we had a few interactions with people kind of coming up to us as if we were the police. Oh sitting down and chatting about what we were doing. This guy kind of like was walking by stopped in his tracks and looked at US started walking over to us really purposefully and then start and was like oh so. You're not the Department of Home Affairs. I was about to come over and tell you we were just like okay. All right great another interaction. We had which was funny was Someone came over and was like. Oh my God I work at the Department of Defense like. Oh this is amazing. This is so funny and I don't think she clocked that we. Will you know severe leading the Home Home Affairs? The Marshall Place of Mardi Gras is strange advice. But we also had people coming up and be like Lovett the outfits. You look amazing. Love what you're doing and like people that maybe had seen us in the protests previously will like. Did you feel like I'm watching it? It seemed like there was overwhelming support coming from the audience as you're coming leading leading the Liberal Party. Did you feel overwhelming support coming from the audience as well? I personally Dressed as captain cool. Oh you're right I wasn't. Yeah which is good Yup skomer. The officer that was dressed as sky also wasn't getting support. Go my was going around pretending to shake people's hand so he was getting a lot of resistance which is right uh-huh there was a bit of yelling at us because it takes a moment. I think for the Penny to drop for a lot of people use the Department of Mofaz offices turning something back and then they saw us the fake liberal replica. Liberal Party flows And then so. Some people start Clocking on then. And then it's not until they see the The actual Liberal Party float that it's like. Oh yeah but we were handing out flyers that information about what we were doing. So that's really important because people you see people engage with that and you can say that. Okay Yeah and yeah so so support from the crowd as well back. Do you feel like there's been ongoing support since the like. Have you been getting feedback? And that's what's really great feedback right which has been one of the most excellent pots Especially getting feedback from fascinations activists reposting and sending messages of support to say yes. This is an amazing action and thank you and great solidarity So that's been especially important but also messages from the community of like fantastic love. You guys love your work which is really excellent. Pies Action Great. You mentioned before that you had done a protest before the two thousand eighteen. At Mardi gras conducted similar one which was in solidarity with refugees affected by the coalition's offshore detention policies. They decided to make arrests in two thousand twenty. When they didn't bother a couple of years ago I think that partly Two years ago it was a fortieth anniversary so it was a special deal and I think that the police were hyper aware of how bad it would look if they were arresting quiz at Mardi gras fortieth anniversary. Forty three major. I was surprised that we were arrested. I wasn't expecting to be pulled off because it does look cyber. Add attention which is a funny flipside of the stress of getting arrested and being handled in that way Is that you do get a lot of media attention because the media loves the rest so. I was surprised that they did that. I think it was We held Taylor Square for a really long time. It was like four minutes. It's quite funny. If you watch the live footage it's pretty crazy was hosting the thing and they were sort of going. Oh this is cool my next about this and I turn back and so you guys. About how much airtime on. I think whoever was producing that was a practice and all of a sudden. He's standing down like somewhere else back absolutely. No but that's that's very funny so I think maybe part of the arrests was that we held it for so long and they obviously made a decision. I mean we were starting to move on so it was completely unnecessary. We went hosing. Risk anyone As an activist group and has a protest getting arrested. Did you consider that a bit of a success or is it more of a failure? You know what I mean. Yeah tidally I'm very aware the widest Ralian not to Romanticize being arrested flag certain groups do certain climate groups. Do think it's really important not I am. Yeah Romanticized that like. It's a really good point. Actually we certainly did not plan to get arrested In the moment it felt like a failure. I felt really disappointed. That we've been pulled out of the parade Afterwards though saying how much media attention that Roy was like okay. The flipside flipside of that happening Is that? We are getting a lot of attention. There's a lot of hate on the New South Wales. Police Force of a positive coming out of it is that we are now contributing to this conversation about whether police should be at. Mardi Gras Which is really is great to kind of Be Contributing to that conversation So I guess it's a bit of a mix maybe in the end it kind of turned into a bit of a positive thing because it brought a lot of attention and Brought out the roots of Mardi Gras and how it began as a violent very very violent Saying Against Liquids Against Quay paypal. Yeah I guess another. I don't WANNA call it a civil but another opportunity that happens within with that happening at Title Square. Was you'll right in front of that? Big Pay grandstand posting it and people sitting in the film those arrests in place on social media which. I think more attention to the process which you know strange ways is a good thing and a lot of the official photographers are sitting there. Yeah Yeah And a lot of them were taking photos. Some needed a bit of encouragement of this arrest. Come on yes. It's important to capture. The purchase did go viral in part due to the Greens leader at which you just mentioned Reposted the video on twitter over to the mayor saying did you receive any sort of a lot from more anyone from its party. Not that I have been aware I haven't been completely across the social media platforms that we're on Jenny. Leong and other grains grains later Posted video as well. She was there as well So we've got some. We've got support from your at Jenny. Leong in that way. But we'll Adam absolutely. Yeah if you say Samuel Doe the artist who did a beautiful picture of of your team members. Sorry about it until yesterday and I was really chuffed. Say That now. There was also a separate protest going on at the Monaco by Socialist Group. Code the Social Alternative who would chanting fuck the Al Pe- as the Labor flight passed by and of course federal opposition leader Anthony Albanese e then gave them the finger which has since talked about on the news and said he doesn't regret and also felt that those people shouldn't be chanting against the IOP and also felt the. You guys should not have been protesting the Liberal Party What's your take on that I look? I can get behind a message like fuck. The total focus is largely on refugee policy government policy as well as yeah working in solidarity with first nations people and the AARP does not have an excellent track record. A lot of their refugee policy has been horrendous So I absolutely can get behind A Message if we had more people would be protesting. Lp.

"Like we said though the Real Mardi gras celebration started in earnest in Mobile Alabama. Right yes so. He named the thing. I don't know if he actually celebrated Mardi Gras but he named that little area. He named that area Ponto Mardi Gras but the so that was sixteen. Ninety nine apparently four years later Immobile before it was even a town. They celebrated their first like Mardi Gras party. Or whatever or something like that. The fort and the New Orleans was Inc founded in seventeen eighteen and they started having Mardi gras parties like shortly after that so resolved very close to the beginning of the eighteenth century everybody started having Mardi Gras and it was like directly from the French influence in the area. And if you look into the early eighteen. Hundreds like the eighteen twenties and into the eighteen thirties. This is when you start seeing a little bit more of what we're talking about as far as Carriages that are decorated People parading in masks walking on foot. Yeah well at this point or encourages. It was largely spontaneous though Church there. Just be people partying on the street wearing mass. Yeah let's talk that way. Yeah they did and then other people will walk that way too and all of a sudden you had A. That's right but the thing is these this revelry on the streets because everybody was indulging in the pointless like jolt but really really overindulge. This wasn't just your average like village party the centre everybody was getting trashed even back. Then and so people were getting in fights and people were copson horses kicking people right off of their feet. All sorts of crazy stuff was happening. It was cops New Orleans And so the the city the city leaders were like. We're not going to do this anymore. This is out of hand and an eighteen fifty seven. I believe a group of Actually from what? I saw transplants for Mobile. Who were members of a group called the Cow Bellion Durant in society. More cowbell sure they They said hey how about. This will actually organize a legit parade in. It'll be much more orderly. There won't be this chaos and they formed the mystic crew of Thomas or Komo yes so. There's a lot of cases in place of Sees Mystic K. But it doesn't look scary like we talked about right. Oh does it to you well not mystic crew but it depends on what follows mystic. 'cause it could look creepy to me okay. but crew is spelled with a k. r. e. w. e. and we should go ahead and talk a little bit about what a crew is. Yeah it's It's a group of people who get together and Technically they are like legit nonprofits and as they get larger at least via the charity organizations. They're supposed to be. Yeah and they are sort of the group of people who would get together and say this is our gang and we're going to Gang in a good way and we're GONNA make afloat and do this theme this year and then all get together and get super drunk. Probably not even I bet you there's a a non drinking crew like one gotta be there has to be at least at grew right but they They they they were anonymous originally like they were yesterday groups that were like out and proud in public but like they wore masks like their identity. Really was anonymously. You were an anonymous member of this group. Try and and Over time now people like the anonymity is not quite as important and it is to some though I think I think sometimes they take it serious new still. Yeah I mean not in like I don't know maybe you can't get kicked out it. Might it might be more of a light hearted thing but I think generally they try and still respect the the masks on approach sure. Okay all right but I mean like if you told somebody like I'm a member of the Crew of wrecks or something like that kick you out taking your mask off during the parade specifically think so. Yeah so we'll hear about it. We got that wrong. We definitely they grew from these little tiny societies into very large groups Well funded almost across the board. Yeah because they're supported by do's and they put on parades and balls masquerade balls on the night of Mardi Gras and Some of them are just really enormous. Have like big name. Celebrities like huge bands that play and yeah nominate a person to be like the leader. The King or Queen. Yeah each year. Yeah like you could. They could say Josh Clark. We want you to come down. They could and be the king of our crew this year. Right and that's how it started back in eighteen fifty seven I think is eighteen. Seventy two that. The first King of a crew is nominated right but eighteen. Fifty seven was when the mystic crew of Komo's Had what's now looked at the first As the first kind of modern Mardi Gras parade and Aside from a few years where like world wars interrupted things. They've been doing this every year since then. Yeah there's another so eighteen. Fifty seven was a big year. Eighteen seventy two. That I mentioned was another big year because that year the The traditional Mardi gras colors were added. I believe by the crew of wrecks. And there's a lot of A lot of misunderstanding supposedly so that year the crew rex named as their king or the the leader. I can't remember which one he was. The Russian Grand Duke Alexi who was from the House of Romanoff and they said well these colors came from the house of Romanov the gold the green and the purple that we also see it with with Mardi Gras. This is absolutely not true. The House of Romanov has like red yellow and blue. I believe or their colors. But that's just the legend that came about but some other stuff that year like the idea of electing a king through your Mardi Gras parade Throwing beads for the first time happen that year. Yeah the song the yeah the song what. What is it if I ever cease to You've never heard it actually so you I bet you if we played it you might recognize it. So the colors though purple stands for Justice Green for faith and gold for power supposedly. I'll just made up out of whole cloth here and the idea with the beads was supposedly originally that you would toss these two people. He thought exemplified these traits. I'm not sure how accurate that is. Either Now it is. Of course morphed into another tradition which. I don't even know if that's still going on why. Hey Mr throw me something. Throw me something Mister Mister. Throw some combination of those words. I'll show you something and you throw me something. Oh that's different so I think it went from. You look like you're involved in justice. Here's some beads to there's this traditional call. I think Mr Throw me something. Okay and then. I think it morphed into the boobs thing that you just did that literally quieter. But I don't even know you know with all the advancements we've made in the past few years if people are doing that anymore. I would like to know about that because I'm not going to go down to Mardi Gras. How come to New Orleans jazz fest? Not Mardi Gras. Yeah and I'll have a blast. Sure but I'm not going to go to this things when we were there last October. Think so yeah and there's candy in the streets in I'm like there's no way this is leftover for Mardi gras parades all the that. I was wondering yes. Do they. Just do it. All the time I mean every time I've been there have been parties. Parades just just seems like one of those towns where they're always getting down right throwing candy Should we well? I guess we should say quickly if you're before we break if you'RE GONNA go. We're not discouraging ago right But planet advance.

I think you can go under US auspices for sure but you'll be sleeping in the van really different kind of experience hotel. You're in advance. Yeah you won't get a hotel. You won't be able to eat emeralds or anything like that. Now she planned far in advance. You could storm immortals which people who sleep in vans and talk like you just did you all right.

"They think, are they? There's evidence. At least there was Mardi gras celebrating going on maybe as early eighteenth century, definitely from what I saw, there was a French explorer named Pierre Lemoyne. Sierra. De Belleville I think you. You really got it. Yeah, especially, if you crunch it together and speed it up, I can't do you really nailed it? And he was exploring around and camping out.

They've camped about their bed of how much the tax payers paying. And it's a really good point. Why the fuck you spend money? Okay I was in the hospital for forty. My partner was in hospital for seventeen days. I was in the hospital for seven days because it was Liverpool Hospital. I had three guards outside my door to make sure I didn't escape. Three guards outside his door. There are more guards in that war than there were nurses and they were actually getting in the nurses ways now when you tell you four thousand dollars a night per bed and it's two beds not one. It was two. That's eight thousand dollars a day and then there's the guards in the medication and the nurses and the transportation and all that it was just so much but the doctors were really really very very kind to us that Liverpool hospital because his TB ended after seventeen days mine was a lot more severe. The doctors actually let him stay an extra sixty days in the hospital on necessarily just because they didn't want to separate us which was just amazing so very grateful to that but eventually he had to go and I was stuck in hospital for thirty days and I'm really grateful to Australia and Australian people industrial government actually helping curious of this because it could've killed this eventually probably within five years but you gotta keep something in mind and point part of the reason. I put that board above my bed. That tally of how much it was costing was because being hospital sucks. Okay especially when you're I wasn't especially when you're not bedridden. I mean I was healthy. I didn't have any signs or symptoms of TB or anything like that none of it and when you're in a hospital but you got three guards outside your room and you're not allowed out of that room thirty days. It wasn't any kind of health concern or anything it was just the guards and the Abe not wanting to let me out of the room. He wasn't allowed to come and visit until I appeared on the project. Chill the project got involved. Which point day started to allow him to come and visit me in the hospital Three times a week. There are people have relatives children who die while they're in custody and they don't let them out to go visit or go to the funeral. Because of the media attention and all sorts of gays the gay community was so instrumental in getting us out all the attention that was thrust everywhere on social media all the support that we got put pressure on the government to let my partner coming to visit me three times a week I started being allowed out of that hospital room.

Some observed year years twelve months for a variety of different crimes from drug dealing to rape to murder. We're in there with murderers so those people are all mixed in with the with asylum seekers and refugees and for us to be in that search in that atmosphere was quite intimidating. I mean just from the first day I had a big Samoan Guy. He's going to kill you just because I was assigned to be in the same room as him. They didn't assign us to the same broom initially at least not until they found out we were journalists and then everything changed and for us to couple of Saudi guys. Just arriving in Australia I was like horrific. It was scary crystal meth. There's so much crystal meth in Australian detention video stories. This blows my like in these detention centers that we you know astray Leah right wing. Australia's like we're going to be so careful that we've got a pink. Cape people nowadays awful places that have you know sometimes islands or have fencing all around them with Bob. Wire around it and so we're going to be so complicated but obviously this gods and bringing she'd into into these centers to care you probably say who's doing it but let me. I can't remember the names of the guards but I remember I remember. He had a hospital visit and He went to the hospital for something and he had two guards that were with him in the elevator and one of the guards opened up his back to get something out of it and just to smell of great cannabis just came out of that bag he was telling me it must be good stuff but The guards who get in but also the other way that it gets in Australia are very particular about their pat search laws so they can't really touch down here. They can't really do anything there. So visitors coming to the detention centers did actually put the drugs. They're you'd actually put a lot of drugs in their. Apparently referring says quote for the people listening. Yeah exactly yes now. Speaking of the gods some point one of the gods sits in the nine years that he'd worked there. Yeah he'd never had a gay couple before the forgot. Make you feel more comfortable less comfortable. Well when he told me that by that stage had been on the project a couple of times. Our case had already been in the media. Y- A lot so by the time. He told me that we had to twenty four hour guards on us with us because they did something stupid in the beginning When I first started doing the media interviews all by phone not in person I started talking about the drugs that were in Villawood and of course that upset the drug dealers. The guards and I was stupid. I don't ever been to prison before so it was just apparently. You're not supposed to be talking about those things especially when you say in prison rookie prison. Yeah Rookie prison mistake. They actually ended up having guards on us. Twenty four hours so anytime we would meet. I have to walk around. It'd be some be three meters away from us. Every night. They would walk into her door. Open door check out. We're okay which is kind of a pain in the ass if you're trying to have sex in the middle of the night but the asset side. That was really fucking awful. Yeah we'll cut. That was causing Christly Jerk Ben.

Excellent Grinder works over there by the way John. Does billy thing is. You're worried that the person you're meeting is he gonNA bring along five members of the religious police at which point you're going to end up on the chopping block. Catfish that's happened. We had. I have South African friend of ours. He's from South Africa and he was an English schoolteacher and he was in his thirties. And the guy had lived in Saudi for like five or six years and then He got on one of the APPS like grinder or one of those and he ended up hooking up with just nineteen year old Saudi student while the Saudi student happened to be working for the religious police and right when they got together to meet he ended up getting poundstone and the interest taken to jail. They took him back to his house. They went through computers. They went through his personal stuff. They found his collection of gay porn and they found videos he's charged with other Saudi young men and he ended up getting sentenced to two years in prison and two thousand lashes.

I mean you have sex in Slama country which is not the best divide years but I mean for him. It just completely changed the way that he was before he went in and the way that he was afterwards it was horrible experience for him so I mean I don't WanNa last time. Saudi Arabia executed. Somebody for just being gay I know. The last batch of executions day did was about thirty five to forty two people. I'm not exactly sure five of those were gay. But they weren't executed because they were gay. They executed for other stupid reasons but they just happen to be gay. So executions do continues to happen. Yes.

"So we touched on the past on like pup play and leather play and domination and subs but yeah like we Ramos. Yes you had that story I feel like you have a lot of stories that kind of buy off shore based but yeah like role plays like a big thing in a career community. It's a big thing in six. I mean I kind of always thought if it is it's kind of like a couples like last resort fixing relationship like in the movies and stuff and it's like this is like one last chance but yeah it's not actually always about like sexy maid outfit so like firemen and stuff like that is. It's happening but there are many aspects of role play in our lives as people not always actually but a lot sexually but I mean like honestly like we.

"Checking. What my friend was anything so I was just scrolling through and it actually stopped on that. Trans people sick give what the fuck is this. I don't know how they do put the subtitle is pop up. If you haven't clicked on you know you can see and you just say faggot. Yeah on your phone. I hate to use the definitely triggered the F. Word I hate it. I can't even like the surname fog. Rt like I it's like Oh I hate that word say eight said and bounce thing I think fundamentally the Coda action was fucked up on this it should have been the other way round. Words have not been there instead. There should have been a number of members of the community explaining what words a positive and reinforcing for one another lift each other up because it normalizes speech. Sorry to go in a bit of rent hit but something that a lot of straight people vaas me day today is what what simple they say. Why don't you just reclaim that word? Why don't you just make it your own? And so it doesn't work anymore. But we don't WANNA use by banks to well the issue is we can't reclaim it because banks to think it's okay for it to be broadcast on twitter. People legitimately still think it's okay to use these words in mainstream media and I sent Yo sticker. Oh my God I say let let me sorry. Look at this. This was yes. Sorry guys order. This was at my tram. Stop in a very queer. Friendly talked this inbetween eighty six and and circuit to gay bars. I frequently kicked out of just at the trim. Stop someone put a sticker that said Kua AIDS KICKAPOO FDA to death so I'm sorry that's shocking but it shocked me and I had to like dolls. Albany these were stuck around. Tram stops and the thing is this. Language is so prevalent. It's so prevalent. And it's somewhat socially acceptable to use it. It's very hard to reclaim a slow and turn it into something positive. Which is why am I where people were still being a sort of affected by on a daily basis and so I hear kids saying now like three days ago and the trauma I literally like. Oh like I was at finished the day and I was walking to my tram. Stop just the same one. I go to every day and I just had my headphones and I was watching something and then all of a sudden I saw this person like yelling and I was just like what the fuck is this person saying staring directly at me and all of a sudden all I hear his faggot screaming so loud that everyone around me I looked up. And they're all staring at me and I was just like takes me back to when I was in high school and someone would say that to me and I was like. Please please. Don't get on my fucking tram like just Dr and I was just sitting on there just like petrified coal. Josh and I was just like I don't know what to do right now. Like this is ridiculous and then watching the fucking. I ended at some you kidding you probably saw it on the same day this week. Like and that's why this language company throwing. It was interesting because within the same week I have this early for. Police released very similar video. Where they read mean tweets which also included a number of slows. Hate speech and their action was much quicker. They took it down probably within a day. They were like really. We're really sorry that was inappropriate to allow speech any sort of space even if it is for members of our community you don't know the context of people consuming or being exposed to it. It's different from from Jimmy. Kimmel web Taylor swift goes someone called me fat on Instagram. And you'll laugh because these people were minorities all minorities. We're not like what they instead like what they're trying to do. They're trying to start a conversation with shock value. They could've done in a better way. I guess I'm happy as well like it could have been done in a lot worse way like we're in the wasn't people like screaming this someone coming from our community and they paid for it which was also nice. Yeah I think the important thing is. I don't think anyone's angry at the people that are. I think Controversial thought but advertise advertising guys and the goal of the campaign. It's actually technically a good campaign in then. It gives you the emotions that you're supposed to feel when you watch as the incredible Nicolas's pointed out which is which is the thing that I'm most angry about. This ad is that it's being promoted to queer people who are attending Mardi Gras. You've seen that ad then. You've probably liked modern facebook. You probably leaving Sydney or you probably have been to a gay bar in Australia or something like that. It's not the not putting this on television. Not they're not sending it to the people that actually pointed out which transpose are attending Mardi Gras. That your show. These ads should be shying no offense front row but in the grand final of the AFL people have probably dealt with. I think you probably have dealt with that kind of behavior from certain parts of the community. But they've specifically targeted to community because what they're trying to show you is not actually. Let's say listen. Let's show the people that might give us money that it looks like we're teaching a lesson. Some ads like it's not a surprise to us at those words exists. No we missed does seeing those young people with that and they were. They looked emotional and they probably were. It was probably very traumatic experience for them to feel that if the Middle Australians civilians that aren't really connected to these communities soul that ad you'd actually might have the desired effect that the ad had but don't fucking show us. We was using the right way I think is mighty gras like you get so many good advert campaigns and stuff and all that kind of uplifting and happy and like those ones that are call it glad verts like fast hit you in and it's a nice feeling. Celebrate time celebration so you don't want to be able to really negative downfield. The hurt locker APP. I don't love it like I feel like it just putting a rainbow bandaid horrible things that you can't keep silencing something until it goes away lost my hex debt but it's usually to shut up around baby face beat Yes absolutely you have to take everything with a pinch of salt coming from a bank. I mean it would be much nicer. Eight guys into the whole. And this is a big compensation for the for the last five to six years that we've been having in the community about corporate sponsorship. We're going to go where we are going to go there but I look. My opinion is as I've said many times for the people before us when Sydney night is when they were rounded up and their names are printed in the Sydney Morning Herald and they were arrested and locked up. They got fired from their jobs for being a part of Monica so for some organizations. I think it's kind of fucking amazing that they're putting their name and their money towards supporting this thing happening. This this whole festival would not have been but especially tomorrow night would not happen if there was not corporate sponsorship. I don't know the specifics of how money runs. I know people that work on the Melbourne Pride Parade which is tiny compared to the parade but the only funding they get from the government entirely goes on just closing the Straits of everything else. That they pay for has to be done from From corporate sponsors now having said that we need to look at who way taking corporate sponsorship from and if it is a one of the big banks that is contributing to detention centers or is donating money right wing fossil fuels or right wing. Political parties annoyed should not be allowed to give their money having said that. I said I don't think should be allowed to be putting their money towards campaigns or put their labels on on mighty. Yeah but I do think it's great that they do run an internal thing they're quote they're pride network which is an typing a lot of big organizations and I think regardless of how evil the company is. It's not even about visibility is making sure that staff feel good and then there's also other commercial campaign so there was the bones campaign that came out about making money like it's about making money but there is a side part to it which is that we are inquiry people that aren't the traditional underwear model. We've got some bears in there. We've got trans. People who who do not see the bodies like their own in underwear campaigns. There's a lot of buddies out in the Ot community so four people have the community to be able to say these billboards and they social media campaigns of people in in Andy's selling underwear kind of also K. With that as well yeah. It's a tricky one because I was talking to someone the other night about sort of sponsorship and D- do you guys remember when seven eleven was selling let gays sandwiches and she a bad stuff and Smith's has like rainbow chips. You can. Oh you can buy like pride flare rainbows. Anything smell like ammo is. Yeah I mean they cool if we had like a really like gay bank. We could like just like Queens. Okay cards and it'd be if you'll funding fossil fuels and Liberal Party members discriminate against us. You can't sponsor I'm sorry to say Yeah I don't take okay especially I'm sorry I already did. You see the a few years ago. Mardi Gras are actually declined to respond to ship in a partnership with sex bar. Because they didn't want to tarnish the family friendly brand and the over fetishes ation of the gay community and they thought that that was inappropriate but to take sponsorship from a from a and said I think you know we we have to hold certain decisions against and I think that's the job of the idea of having a Mardi gras and every other fast food exists. Your responsibility is to make sure that you are taking money from organizations alliance without absolutely. I just wanted to fit that in and I took place a couple of baboon so if anyone anyway. Topic is a bit of a lighter topic weirdly. I'm doing the sexy. Dopey tonight tonight. We're going to be talking about row. Play.

"Try not to use them but it might be easier to explain. Try No point. I'm joking God so i WanNa talk about the A. N. Z. said Mardi Gras campaign. Yeah we've got a van in the second one work. Oh yes thank you. Thank you for the homeland just to recap for anyone that means it on social media and stuff so there was that said that eighty percent of Qa plus. Australians received aggressive homophobic slurs directed at them in the last twelve months most of them from. Kyle apparently thank you. So hey what the fuck fuck you so? I decided to create a quote a loves loves campaign so as opposed to a love speech campaign. They have done a lot of sounds mighty grab before they were the ones that did the gainsaid Gedeon. Yes love them that I thought that was. That's the kind of branding I want but this one did not go down as well as the guy. Tm unfortunately so there was a few even positive. The campaign They main part that has upset people was there was a video that was released and it featured lgbt. Australians looking at a camera quite solemnly and repeating this. Liz heard over time. A lot of them are quite young people and it was the response was incredibly triggering to say the least very quickly there is no there was no warning of it which I think is an issue. The next thing they also released was hurt block web. What do you call it a plugging and so is the thing you could put onto your web browser that would stop homophobic or transphobic mode rainbow and stuff. We don't sort of their own ads now. Well that's the thing because it doesn't block video content whatsoever written word next ad which is also the poster campaign and the idea of the poster campaign was to replace words traditionally associated with a shared online. I think it was only released in Sydney or the prices are only up sitting like trans people are so fabulous and the idea was no no. That's not what is said. It was it said. Trans people are sick and then waited a few seconds of being so fabulous also the visual prices that were posted up on on. It's it's like lesbian. Just needs a good man and it was like to have a team of like dad writers writing this. I read it the idea of that why not. I'm not defending it all plays. I just tried to explain that. The second to the idea of that part of the campaign was to be like. Oh we're used to hearing these. Let's rephrase the conversation about these people in this. That was the idea. Let's talk about how it went. Swimmingly this is anyone that's worked in marketing knows when you do a marketing campaign there has to be a code action. There has to be some point to it and the fundamental issue with this is the CO two action in this campaign is. Let's stop using these words and start using positive words. Yeah but instead of shirk showcasing the positive yes. They actually just punched down a bunch of minorities them to repeat a lot of traumatic words without a trigger warning so I was flipping through through through through my. What is the twitter twitter co speaking? Through my tick Tock. Today I was speaking to my twitter. Just stop for a inbetween. My porn viewing checking. What my friend was anything so I was just scrolling through and it actually stopped on that. Trans people.

This is what pick up the groceries in Dover on me but the point is the gatekeeper is absolutely justified.
