It was the speech from a remote far north Queensland town that stole the hearts of many in the LGBTIQ+ community. Where resources are much more scarce and social support setup in impossible conditions with minimal discretion, Josh Goyne defends his title as raining winner of Brisbane Pride’s Queen's Ball. We take a look back at some of his biggest moments that cemented his influence as a leader in parts of the #lgbt community that still suffer in silence reminding us how very lucky we are even post-equality. The decades of work that achieved #equality was just the starting point for unrecognised problems and issues like the ones @thegaycowboyaus aims to address as a competitive rodeo athlete, charity founder assisting sufferers of stroke and a string of community projects making his mark in his sometimes isolating hometown. A demonstrate of strength and resilience - who will you vote for? #rodeo #cowboy #bullrider #brisbanepride #brisbane #brisbanegay #gaysydney #canberra #gaycanberra #cowboysnation #gaymelbourne #rodeolife #cowboystyle #pride #ukpride #gayadelaide #gayperth #gaybrisbane #ruok #acon #sydneymardigras #perth #darwin #loveparade #twenty10 #bendigo #joondalup #loebethal

Today is IDAHOBIT Day! (International Dat Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexism and Transphobia) Given the public discourse over the last few years, including a vote on our marriage rights and prominent sports stars and leaders condemning us to hell you may think we have a long way to go. And we do but also we have come so far. And we should recognise the steps we have made towards tolerance and work towards a better future together.

Once upon a time (a looong time 🙈) #throwbackthursday of #genderfuckery (Same week, two different #sydneymardigras parties) in celebration of International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexism and Transphobia. On May 17, 1990, the World Health Assembly of the World Health Organization approved the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD 10), which no longer listed homosexuality as a diagnosis. Today, we use IDAHOBIT on May 17 to champion inclusion, and build a better world for the LGBTIQ community. #idahobit #idahobit2019 #lgbtcommunity #lgbtqmentalhealth #lgbt #lgbtq 🌈 #queer #genderqueer #androgynous #drag #camp #wearefamily #nonbinary #trans #endhomophobia #queerpride #loveislove #genderexpression #dragking #theinvisiblefemme #femmetribe #genderfluid

'1985' NON-SPOILER REVIEW: 8🙏🏻 / 10 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Adrian Lester, an advertising executive living in Manhattan, returns home to Texas for Xmas after not having seen his family for 3 years. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While struggling to deal with the recent loss of his gay partner, during the 1st major wave of the HIV/AIDS crisis, Adrian tries to reconnect with his estranged ex-girlfriend - Carly [Jamie Chung], his younger brother - Andrew [Aidan Langford] & his deeply religious parents - Eileen [Virginia Madsen] & Dale [Michael Chiklis]. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When Carly tries to rekindle a physical relationship with Adrian, she discovers the truth about why he left & his current dire situation that has significantly affected his circle of gay friends back in New York City. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Can Adrian tell his family the truth about his life & circumstances? What will their reactions be considering their deep Christian values in America's Bible Belt? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Shot in B&W on 16mm film, the story is beautifully told with a moody & grainy tone giving not only age but significant visual substance to Yen Tan's direction. However, it is the performances of both Virginia Madsen & Michael Chiklis that are simply outstanding. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Chiklis, known for his roles in 'The Commish', 'The Shield' & 'Gotham' shows a far more aloof yet sensitive side to his acting, here. Dale Lester is a God-fearing man who works hard in a factory all day, comes home & quietly drinks after work & attends church without fail every Sunday; he knows far more about what's going on around him than he lets on. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Madsen, whose career 1st started in vacuous 1980's movie roles, shows a true depth to her acting talent as Eileen Lester, the protective & devout mum that is pleased to finally have all her 'boys' together for the 1st time in 3 years. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⭐⭐⭐ This film is not for everyone & the reviews on IMDB reflect that; the story is a very slow-burn but the revelations are worth waiting for. The scene in a Manhattan nightclub is a timely reminder about how the AIDS crisis in the 1980's still wasn't a deterrent for promiscuity. ⭐⭐⭐ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thanks to @iconfilmaunz ; '1985' is out in 🇦🇺 from April 25th, 2019 & exclusive to ©️

Can uh imagine a 10 –foot –tall (3meter) version of a stories sticker on a #sydneymardiGras Float?! (we did) 🌈🌈 London based illustrator josh Mckenna ( @jshmck ) learned the news that we wanted to bring hiS sticker to life via email late at ni8..." l couldn't quite believe what I was reading", says josh."I couldn't replY quick enough and was keen to hear more about the design process and manufacturing of the figure becoming 3D." He was on the ground at sydney 's annual Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras celebration to see the float IRL.. . . . Josh created this sticker as a symbol of empowerment and encouragement." The figure itself doesn't have a name ,as I want it to be open tO interpretation , but visually was taken from vogue dancers of the past. He also works on a level with many people to express sassy feelings and excitement for a weekend, party or general 'Yasss' moments !" #fearlessstories ...🙏😯😯
