[00:00:00] This podcast is brought to you by the Elgar Oceania rainbow human rights and health conference [00:00:05] and pride [00:00:10] This last question for today is one that I really wanted in the program a little bit said that it's at the end of the day when everyone's tired. So I'm appreciating the fact that people have teamed up. [00:00:26] Two years ago when we started the conference, [00:00:30] that funny kind of starts when you're in these very intense thinking emotional times. It's not even 24 hours ago that we started. So much has happened already. I just want to hope that service station the last of today is a session on LGBT I health saying LGBT it because it doesn't really represent our community and the totality. It's great [00:00:57] privilege and honor to like to GIFs tonight, we starting with Elizabeth Katie Katie. [00:01:06] I've known Elizabeth for a long time with two people that have worked with us without an attorney for a long time. Because I've known always that our future is no, it's not with those of us who are all currently the community that's coming after us. Elizabeth reminded me before that she wasn't one of the people that has devilish the front of me she was that reason established to funnel [00:01:40] organized. [00:01:44] I love working with Elizabeth because one of the things about me and summer closet military person. [00:01:54] It's a tomboy boy mail piece I know that you've seen most of the time, but it listed as a closet adult, she's right out there, looking across who else the end of the day when you're exhausted will be walking around with pride with the nice glittery pair of high heeled shoes. And then I've ever seen, and I've seen this was wearing the shades and very uneven, dangerous looking concrete and cheap. [00:02:26] Please put your hands together for this extraordinary evening. Elizabeth Kelly coming? [00:02:40] Oh, no. [00:02:44] I was thinking about when I wanted to acknowledge many of the travelers, I think some of them, it's coming to the end of a long day. And I want it I hope that the next time that they're able to come to this country, and we hold a call. So hopefully we can do it on MRI. Because then we can lie. And what I feel is a much more civilized fashion on mattresses. And, and our culture was always fine that you fell asleep because we believed that the discussion in the house you absorbed and encourages of someone story to live years kind of push them a little bit and [00:03:25] be fine. [00:03:26] So well done getting to this point of the day. And, of course, thank you to the organizers really, really truly amazing. [00:03:35] I wanted to do a special shout out to our Pacific foreigner [00:03:40] that [00:03:42] I think is Marty our closest relations and fake we talk about people of the Pacific be now to a kind of our elder brothers, sisters, gender diverse siblings, and that we want to honor their knowledge and knowledge all of the sacred spaces of all the places that you have come from the places you live in the places that you call home. Want to do a particular shout out to my bt we were all here. We were teenagers together and the black woman's movement nearly 35 years ago. And I just want to acknowledge that bt sit up the first Pacific Island social services and this country in the 80s was set up by a 19 year old out someone lesbian. And I think it's pretty incredible. [00:04:37] And also I have a particular heart for the Pacific because much as I tried very hard to find MRT girlfriend and I looked high and low [00:04:47] internet Venus and one woman that was able to keep my attention. And on on Monday we celebrate 24 years to get up. [00:05:00] And thank you because yeah, on one level, I'm totally showing off. But on another level, it's actually it's a revolution for us to have healthy happy family beautiful relationships inside our community. Because when things are good at home, we can operate much bigger in the rest of the world. [00:05:18] Okay, and one last thing because it says my want, I will I take being very seriously. [00:05:26] And I don't always just like this at home for some special occasions. And my father and offer kicks me in high heels. And also, of course, I want to always stay my absolute admiration for the book aesthetic, every opportunity I get. So I wanted to reference I'm going to get to health by way of some other things. The theme of the conference around Reese stoking the fires, I thought that was really intriguing, because as Marty, we have a particular construct around the Africa and those are the people who keep the home fires burning. So we might all come from a particular place and especially us will acknowledge our tribes miners from on the east coast where the sun rises. And again, any opportunity I have with is lots of money and room I'll always talk that we are the center of the universe, just to you know, just cuz [00:06:25] but we [00:06:28] are those who stay home, the rest of us go out to find our fortunes and and find ourselves and the rest of the world they stay home and keep things going and traditionally that he can meet that you will see sold in that area. And they overtime and continuous use thing you could claim that space. And I think that that's really critical when we're talking about recharging, requiring about claiming the space and continuing and this is fucker Tokyo proverb that I really like it's co-winner hockey, there are he in London unknown, in manner unknown unknown, which is the wildfire boons, your authority is effective, that we must continue to hold the space. Because as soon as we stop there talking, as soon as we stop tuning up to the meeting and saying the same thing over and over again, until it sorted, we lose this space. And so I want to talk a little bit too about one of the things Sandra mentioned with the other file he report, as one of the number one things they talked about for young people was burnout. And so when we're talking about keeping the fires burning, I think there's real issues when people who are often sometimes acting as individuals, and they're putting all their energy, everything they've got until it you know, really, really quickly some of our groups under resourced, needing to build up capacity and maybe support and connection with the rest of our communities, they start to burn out. And I like the idea that Jane talked about last night, around the movement, actually, that when all of our groups can work together, when we can support each other, we can know what each other is doing, and be there for each other and be able to speak to each other's issues and whatever forum that we are and whatever privilege that we hold that that is this when we can start really moving because we can move together. And it's not necessary that we all have to agree later to kill us. But we have some common common things that we can move forward together on. And so I'm talking about the fun up and I talked a little bit this morning about a group to fund a funder. HCA who CUDA I did I need a rainbow is forming in the sky. And so be very clear. When some people talk about it, they feel that the rainbow is constructed or, or based on just Susan have a certain identities. For us, particularly as Marty, the rainbow has really specific cultural significance to us. And soda is very, very, completely inclusive. So when we use it as an organization, when we use it in our talking, we mean that every single shade, every hue is encompassed within net. And so when we talk about PowerPoint, [00:09:17] as a traditional tomb, [00:09:20] and that's a centuries old tomb, that means intimate Companion of the same sex. And so we're not going to turn around and say that the people who live 500 years ago were listing or gay or bisexual, we're not going to say that they were trans because they had gender fluidity, we're going to use the capacity because it was the tomb, they called themselves. But we claim that now to include all of the breadth of our community, everyone that we see comes under the rainbow. And I love this was like, as an artist, like bring on the colors. And that how important it is that we each, so maintain the right to be able to speak and represent ourselves, and social to founder farmer goals, to tell our stories to build our communities, and to leave a legacy. So that when we do what we do, primarily as a model organization, as a target top of your organization, that we do it in the context of our wider community. Because if we want to uplift the top, we need to uplift all of us. Because as we we exist amongst all of the community and all different identities, all different ages. And so when we're talking about health, then development has been involved in many different projects around health. [00:10:44] Because we are acknowledging all the different identities that we hold. So [00:10:50] mid school here, we've started to develop a relationship with them. And that is about identifying primary health needs. We're going about to launch into another project around homelessness for LGBT IIQ. And we are involved in the intersex Roundtable. So these are all different things, but also involved in many projects, around housing, other projects, and around education, and other areas. Anything basically we can get into we do. And so later we're going to talk about, you'll find this in your [00:11:30] new project, something that we've done earlier, [00:11:34] this important thing, and I talked about what the strategy is how important it is to get research. And to have the information we need to pick out what it is we want to say. Because in and come back to when an individual sees this is my personal experience, the powers that they will go on, that's just you, when it's a group of you that got just a few people, when it's all of us saying it, when all of us and our different identities and different viewpoints, we come from a reiterating the same things over and over, then they cannot help but take notice. And until the two key things, that's one part of it is that Western, requiring an evidence base to make decisions. That the other part of that for us is Marty is to build up and contribute to my PO donor, which is modern knowledge base. Because the way things operate, and our culture is based on T color, which is the way things are done, the processes that we use. So it kinda is that we welcome and as we acknowledge where they come from, before we we normally we open, we say might use people use the phrase blessed the space, we actually free it to the US for the purpose for which it has been that you will come here. And so it comes from to go maybe to make things right. And so with Zika, the way that things operate, the space so much Hold on. So how we make things work that's based on the knowledge base that we have. So for us, it's totally, it's really, really important thing to keep building up this knowledge. Because in the days before colonization, when we had a girl much greater sexuality, open sexuality and gender fluidity, the memory of that has been lost. And that was not by accident. Because at the same time that we lost the bulk of our language, the culture, the excellent consciousness soap, in the way that colonization does its thing. We lost that knowledge about our sexuality. And so as we regain it and reclaim that, and by claiming the truth at the top, we then we reaching back to Africa to our ancestors, that says Actually, we have always been here, we are claiming their back for now. I can make suspect to our language in our culture, and all of those things, but they weren't lost, we still have them and we will retain them, we will aid that knowledge until we get to that point where people realize that discrimination against our people might be part of modern society, it is absolutely not part of modern culture. And that every mighty person, every mighty family family unit should be stepping in to make sure that discrimination against us does not exist. And so the way that the funnel funnel works as a now rainbow communities, but we also work with our families with their funnel with Marty organizations in and tribal groups. And so today, when we talk about the strategy them out early, and all the different layers and all the different ways we need to make things happen process Marley, it says just as important our culture, as it is the way that we express our sexuality, our success in our genius, soul. Let's see. [00:14:54] strategy. I talked plenty about that this morning. There was kind of we staining the internet with politicians and then having people watching. [00:15:03] But I want to talk about this. At the moment, I'm just about, I've been saying I'm just about finished the PhD for quite some time. Now. I'm very conscious. But really, I was honestly nearly finished. But I read and it's about the emergence of pocket software identity, I realized that, yeah, no matter how lovingly how well I craft those hundred thousand words, not all of you are going to read it, I thought you might read this. I'm working with the Mental Health Foundation. So I think it's one of the ways to fund a fund that operates because as I say we're very lean, we focus on a couple of performance and being able to work with communities and engage in that way that we sell fund. And a lot of our political work the in as, as there are voluntary contribution. And so this was a project that we did with the Mental Health Foundation. And this is around the CO couple were funded through suicide prevention. And the way we looked at it, we actually don't talk much about suicide prevention, we look at what it is about an our culture, which will help give hope, and help build the strength and resilience inside our family to look at our young people better with this is a real real issue. And so [00:16:21] I'm going to shortly [00:16:25] get Jake from the Mental Health Foundation to talk about that. But I just wanted to come back to the health we [00:16:34] there's a modern model of health, some of you who work in the health sector in this country, we familiar with Florida. And so that looks at the way to our spirituality, our connectedness with all things in the universe, and in our mind, our emotions as psychological things. And at Siena, our body, the impacts that of his, and then a foreigner, because their family, because as Marty people, without a family without the connection to culture, we can't be home, we can't be healthy. And so we see that all the aspects of all the issues. For me, it's like when I think of it like a mini strategy, they say everything's, everything's a blend. But all the different issues, all the different things that happen to us within our community and the discrimination we face. But also the awesomeness of our lives fits within that model. And so I'm going to hand it over to check to talk about this particular project. So even though checkers in Oakland to is actually [00:17:44] when she was a she nice. [00:17:47] Jake, she [00:17:51] goes to Oakland and Hello, now. Awesome. Yay. [00:18:23] So yeah, Elizabeth was saying I work at the Mental Health Foundation. My role here is [00:18:31] with suicide prevention specialist, WR To be honest, we just changed over Canada. So anyway, that's my thing. And, and it was Yeah, it was really amazing to get to work with Elizabeth, and to fund a fund on this project. So I guess, just a little brief context around suicide prevention generally as it relates to our communities. [00:19:00] Give. [00:19:01] So sometimes he I had a couple of notes, the so yeah, so the vision of our organization as a society, we all people flourish. So against how that we this connects and is that it's nigh on impossible to flourish, if there's a pile of kind of barriers and discrimination that a group of people are facing. So that's our kind of road to being able to work in the space with the rainbow community that will never end. So all of the kind of evidence, if you look at any of the research, I mean, because its own, you know, we're all asked here, I'm not going to go into all of the kind of horrific uplifting stats and stuff. But as we all know, our communities are intensely over represented when it comes to suicide and mental the strength and the fitness also want to take a moment to acknowledge those of our loved ones who are here with us, but are here with us whenever we talk about us. And, yeah, so basically, all of the evidence that there is, and we do need more research, but at all points to the fact that communities are distinctly higher risk because of discrimination and social exclusion, nothing to do with our, our glorious selves or who we are. And I think that sort of gets conflated from this trickiness fear. The amazing upside of that, is there actually, when it comes to our communities, suicide prevention is, is a real possibility, you know, because of the discrimination and the social exclusion is removed, then well being dramatically increases and suicidality, dramatically deep creases, so it's kind of which makes it incredibly frustrating and horrified when that stuff isn't happening. Yeah. Because it is. So kind of there is that systemic solution to a lot of things. And [00:21:15] the deal was, so what [00:21:18] create created a Madea Pacific Suicide Prevention Fund. And we managed to source some funding through that to produce this beautiful resource. And yeah, I guess I just wanted to kind of make a brief mention as well that for those of us I have worked in a store, we can begin in a lot of other really small NGO, but particularly when you're weak in the next phase of your, the rainbow organizations, it's basically it's incredibly so many barriers, all of it, the barriers and exclusion of stuff that we talk about our work at all those different levels. So even in terms of trying to get funding, it's there are so many barriers to actually getting funding into those organizations. And I have noticed working in a mainstream organization that suddenly like the, you know, the money can flow through. suspicious, but you know, but on the other hand, it's Yeah, it's amazing opportunity to be able to kind of get resource for these sorts of things, was incredible honor to work with Elizabeth in in find that synergy between all of the work that she does in sort of done for Eva in, in working out how to frame [00:22:28] that to. [00:22:31] So that sounds like the idea of if we actually think about what Thursday perfect, what constitutes suicide prevention, it is things like community development, strengthening connection to culture, sense of self, all of that stuff, all of those things are like protective factors. So yeah, so it was really exciting to be able to make this resource which was all about pretty, you know, all of those things that didn't increase who we are, you know, or in this case, increase the wellbeing for Taka, Taka. And so I get Sorry, my other thing, the meters, they would get back their connection in terms of how that discrimination and everything works. With with the way that we got managed to get funding for this project was by making it really clear that Marty already faced a massive heap of barriers in discrimination due to being Marty and then for people who are also LGBT is in default at the top with those barriers, and the yet all of that increases, so which is why this is such a important resource. Yeah. And also just a beautiful thing of because Elizabeth, also an artist, and just happens to have a whole series of exhibition that was based on exactly the same thing. Yeah, we had all these really beautiful images to work with. So what we thought do is just show you the, the trailer for, for the project defined in like three minutes. And mean, Elizabeth was going to talk through the top 10 tips for the factory, but I maybe. [00:24:31] And one of the things that Kevin said and his speech, he talked about laying a platform, and we see funnel funnel, what we wanted to do is all of the people who come into this country, whether they've been here for generations or recent migrants, here [00:24:48] there is Marty is at the top, we want to lay a platform [00:24:53] that the rest of our communities can build on and be accepted within. So I wanted to run through my top tips. Just to absolutely make a point about definition that the term purple top we embraces all of our diversity. That being powerful is based on Fugu, by claiming that with claiming MRT culture, we reconnecting with that side of ourselves, that it's about money that we inherit mana when we born, but the tribes that were born into we inherit mana is we live our lives, and we accrue it because of our actions. But that is what we stand on that see is actually it is unacceptable to discriminate against us. identity. It's about knowing who we are. Some, all of you are involved in inclusion, that regardless of whether we speak Marty, whether we know where we come from, that that connection is the end will accept all of those things. Okay? We all in here at gender and sex quality from our ancestors. I think for so many of us, we know at dinner when we're very, very young. We know our sexuality, sometimes our sexual characteristics, and those things don't come to light until later. But those are things that come as part of who we are. And so I believe its way to it, it's a spirituality, that's our ancestors. And so who we are them as a gift from them. And when someone discriminates against us they trample on it, again, not acceptable in our cultural context, that we're part of the family. When people talk about our gay over there or type attack, we are over there as if it's something simple. When people say to me, what do you think of Taka, Taka, and it's like, we are the models. We are not separate from pharma. It's like a thing where people say, are using taxpayers money to do something for for their community, it's like last time I looked all of us taxpayers agrees upon I don't need to get it. They just need to be there. fella talked about always having to be the one that just explains and teaches everybody around you that actually follow. You don't need to ask a million questions to start off with you just said to say, You're my baby. [00:27:15] We love you. Anyone else my purpose they do with us [00:27:19] we will sorted [00:27:21] discrimination fits all of us. Not just those of us who identify within this community, it hurts all of our especially our young women who have to prove that they are heterosexual because of the mess of pressure at hurts where boys and terms of all the things about what does it mean to be a real men and this in our culture and our society, or if there's an impact right across all of our farmer. And it's by say Mother waking me, when this has been an interesting discussion, when I talk about this months of economic cycles. I believe that's because when colonization came along, and that disrupted the status of women and our culture, so they did not acknowledge us as leaders as land owners or in control of land. And they took away our rights to our own body, as sexuality put us into the private to mystic. And so they've, they've destroyed the balance that made our culture work. And so for me, if we can't get those absolute basics, right around gender, we can, we cannot get to the real guts of what it will take to eliminate discrimination against all of us. [00:28:45] This [00:28:46] is all all of the statistics show that if you're LGBT IQ, that you're more likely to have depression or self harm or be suicidal. And now it is discrimination against that contributes to those feelings. Let's be very clear about where that lies, that is not with us, this with the people who hurt us. Yeah, that we totally proudly celebrate. We're not going to be apologetic about all of this, we're not going to hide, to keep those fires burning, we need to always be out. This is really important for me, when I talk about particularly in a modern context is we don't do things separately from our elders and our young people, those things we will be swing we can work together. And so this is really I say this, every time I speak, that we want to be part of the fun of funnel wants to be part of a movement that honors our ancestors respects that ours, we work closely with each other and we look after our young people. And that our well being as complex it comes we need a lot of things going on. We need to do, we can start our Father, we have our friends and within our communities. And the last ones. [00:30:08] This is really important. When we work with follow, [00:30:12] we just say if you're going to be [00:30:15] a leader inside your follow, is that you need to sleep and and so we talk about promoting acceptance. But the most important thing is challenging, challenging discrimination wherever it occurs, and our partner. And so at the back of the book, are those tips summarizes what's in the resource, I hope you read it. This one particular thing I want to bring up that's contained inside here but doesn't feature in the tips is that MRT culture we have a creature was quarter to poor, and they were able to change gender and change for and for me, I believe that our trends and to sex and gender diverse Fano at Sequoia and present day for. And so again, from our ancestors from out of our history, and unacceptable they faced discrimination because of that. And so again, from that Marty platform, and this is something that we hope will be useful for all of you. So [00:31:23] anything else? [00:31:24] Oh, no writer, Tina, Tina, Coco Coco. [00:31:39] Thank you very much. [00:31:42] For the question that I wanted to ask you [00:31:45] within passing movements in New Zealand? How is that aligned for the recognition of trends within sea dog? And the reason why I asked that is because we're in the Pacific, there is a massive amount of disorientation within the team, and all the other trans gender identities about being included with is evil, because we're not women enough in our culture, where were excluded. But one of the question I'm asking is, how does that translate into the museum and attack the moment? So I think [00:32:31] as we fully accept that a few ideally, what someone's wider, then regardless of the agenda that they were assigned at birth, regardless of their appearance, whether explicit the agenda that is right for them, that is true to the wider world, as the one that they are, because they are equal. And so for, for us, it's really simple. Being Aqua, YE me, why me? And so? And we don't see phenomenal, hasn't at the state, it's been involved directly, although individuals of us have with Sydney represented with some of the United Nations work. But absolutely, and I would see that that's absolutely part of the national strategy that we very categorically will be forcing, suggesting really strongly to our government that they'd be made very, very clear. And is when Joey and jack and Sally made the presentation talking about putting gender identity and sexual characteristics on as grounds within cannot be discriminated against and a human rights set. I think that those things that all will lead into that work, but absolutely, absolutely transform. [00:33:52] How to actually use this resource? What would you say how you actually use it? You know, in real terms, I appreciate you don't just give it out to people. I find when you give things out to people, they tend not to read them. They just said, Would you go through it with people would you? I know I work in mental health. And I've spoken to people, if you give them something, that they hardly have all the statistics, if you give them a piece of information, they honestly it's like 1%, or 2% actually ever open it up. I just wondered, I don't know, maybe you found it different. But [00:34:28] let's face it, we give it to those people who asked for it. [00:34:33] So as a primary [00:34:34] audience for this was fun family members who are struggling to encourage and support, they talk about family members. So that is kind of the first thing and then it's kind of mushroomed out to other people who so that they can become familiar with the tomb. And because we have the film resource, that's the trailer, we actually have extended interviews of each of those people. And so it was going to get a jacket as part of the education and some real. Everything inside this is very much called couched within multicultural. So that it's a thing for alpha know to understand. One of the tips is that we have always been here that this is not a forum part here or white thing, actually, with the names we might use lesbian translates might be recent tombs, the identities of who we are, there is ancient. And so that's what this is, what to do I want to check you'd mention that you use? Or is this resource and some of your work or having it what do you have a [00:35:43] winner when I've gone to some places, overseas in many parts of the world where people struggle that, you know, all of these tunes are Western concert stripes, or if you're in the global south, by global north ones. And I just say that this is a wonderful resource, because it does start by saying, This is what seeks orientation, gender identity, and under six or six characteristics is and then by the time we get to the end, and here's some of the people who are this, instead it starts from packet up, white man, all of the things that you you know, that so and turns out to be modern. And then it says, and this is why, you know, if you discriminate against a psychopath way, you are hurting yourselves, you know, we are hurting each other. So I think that's just the such a power and that. And so the people I sell it to where they love it, it looks pretty, it doesn't have too many words. That's wonderful when we were talking, but pretty. Pretty, Scott, it's not too long. And people love that it comes from another part of the world and showed it to people in the town. And they remember Elizabeth, because Elizabeth came to a meeting here. So instead, relationships works. And so they take it they look at the pictures and they say oh, I know here and the people who play small sport new Cuban. And so it does it does week. And it's interesting, I remember thinking, you know, you think they're so small when we brought out the change to inquiry reported. So bank, I thought Who would ever pick it out. But you know, you'd have it on stores and lots of people from indeed PC would pick it up because they had pictures of people they knew and they had these stories. And so I think some of that stuff is a hunger, and particularly popup of modern resource Pacifica resources, these are hunger that needs to be made to have those resources and to find ways of funding them. [00:37:51] I would just add to that I'm, I'm a therapist and work with our community. I've only had access to the resource and resource times. But I'm thinking with clients that I would have loved to have had that book was and that's how I use it now. And you can use it with anybody. You can use it with an young person or an older person, and you go through the narrative and you go, I'm really sad that your family is being an asshole to you right now. But that's not okay. And when you read the story together, and the head of the person here and narrative and see it in the book, that actually what's going on is not okay, it's just so powerful. So I would say yes, this resource has been created. To give visibility to Taka, Taka worry that this is a resource for the planet that anybody can use. Thank you for the gift. [00:38:50] Thanks very much for that. [00:38:52] So could use this resource with healthcare professionals as well as that's one of the things I think it'd be really cool. If we could without [00:39:02] any way that it can be used, we want to get that out. [00:39:05] get that word out. [00:39:07] And, and I would just say to that we've got two more resources underway that will follow that up. We're working at the moment with rainbow youth to do when we were interviewing young people, but also the parents and the grandparents. And to say, [00:39:22] shed, so we [00:39:25] we so then we say how do you create a foreigner? How do you actually make this a real thing to be accepting and deal with issues and whatever comes up? How do we make that happen? And then the third one, again, with the Mental Health Foundation around healthy relationships around how we negotiate. And then we started to move out from type of backward looking at our broader communities. And whether we wanting to have, like, the long term monogamous thing that I've got going on with my partner, or we're polyamorous, or we're working as organizations with each other, how do we relate? So that's the and they won't be starting soon. So they should be the first one of the sheer amount following. So yeah, just [00:40:07] real practical. And just [00:40:09] touch upon that as well. We can order them for free. So the Mental Health Foundation website, and then you go [00:40:18] go to either shop or media. And you can order as many as you want for free. So yeah, [00:40:24] everybody bought piles and piles of them. And then we can Yeah, we can [00:40:28] get them reprinted. [00:40:30] We have had a lot of feedback from various health providers and stuff as well. Oh, yeah. Find that they are actually educated. And I think every you, yeah, great point about people don't usually reading resources. But I do think that this one might be a bit different, just because it's such [00:40:46] a depth of anything. [00:40:48] And the things to be like, Yeah. [00:40:53] Because it's such an accessible resource in in the face with years. I mean, it's technically as far as the research that we did it with, like, the first [00:41:03] indigenous rainbow LGBT is Suicide Prevention Resource in the world. That's [00:41:11] the need for that kind of information if mess up and [00:41:16] get some period. And this is all got all the tickets to them. So this [00:41:22] and it can be seen the through, we've just got the trailer at the moment. But eventually we'll get the full videos that mean, they can be used in a workshop setting or all sorts of things. And that's different people have different ages between like the year from different, we have different ideas to then for the 20s to [00:41:39] hear and [00:41:42] to not fight [00:41:45] night out to make a new [00:41:49] teammate or [00:41:51] pets over. I'm [00:41:59] just wondering this Saturday. [00:42:04] I didn't find this. [00:42:06] Because I'm not [00:42:07] comfortable enough. [00:42:12] But I'm hearing you speak today in your explanation that it covers all of us. [00:42:22] But I [00:42:26] just wanted to say [00:42:39] thank you so much. [00:42:41] I sorry, I'm slow thinker. So later, but I just thought looking at the way it's set out and also just coming from really fantastic session with the Pacific delegates, presentation from Kim, about Christianity, and welcome to live radio, that there's so much crossover and I think this would be a really great resource to share with people from different religious backgrounds who also have fears, rainbow, because there's so much crossover, the spirit, the spirituality side, so much crossover. And I think it's you know, in a lot of religious debates is so, so much difference, and people get lost in the detail. But what I like about what I've seen from this is that it really pulls back. And it gives like that broad picture, holistic thing and, and just the the amount of crossovers and be really great to share with people, you know, Islamic brothers and sisters, Christian brothers and sisters and people from different religions, because it comes from that really great, strong base. So yeah, thank you very much. [00:43:44] You're welcome. [00:43:50] Hello, everyone. Yeah, [00:43:53] I'd like to applaud you for this presentation, it kind of like, [00:43:57] make me feel more [00:44:01] and how inspired because I come from a country where it's very cultural dominated and well for from from it. And from my home islands. We believe that there the existence of LGBT community and even LGBT work as well. And just looking at your presentation, I feel that from now, in the present day, we are not really fully [00:44:28] cultural and that we think about cultural identity but we are not really today because we have [00:44:37] we forgot about the path as its leading us in this document that you have it kind of like made me want to go back and dig further down back into the history books and even [00:44:50] just find more information about this history because once we pick up at history, get more information about it better you can [00:45:00] fortunate towards the future and then claim to say we are we have the cultural identity. [00:45:07] Thank you. And it's so critical when we're talking about research always bring that up it was two of our popular [00:45:13] scholars [00:45:15] who got to the position where they could access material which wasn't easy to access by anybody else. And they found that word for us and gave it to all of our communities and so I I really applaud your citizen That's an incredible idea [00:45:28] to because it's [00:45:32] we have always been here [00:45:34] we are an ancient people from ancient cultures and that knowledge of it exists much as love try to get rid of it you'll find something some way and sometimes in a story yeah one day PhD comes out I found some new things that will be able to talk about but the way of trying to that took me months to find out and confirm that it was what I thought it was this and [00:46:11] that is an awesome like [00:46:15] okay, I would like to finish with a way of circus BT [00:46:22] a really nice to come out [00:46:29] well this is the way it's a which I'm going to get everyone to join in with this a couple of areas which repeat which is great for me because you know fitness not my strength. [00:46:37] So my freedom [00:46:39] is always always a great so these are a couple of lines where I'm going to get you to repeat so one of them is [00:46:49] so what the first one is we won't kneel down and then you repeat [00:46:59] and then upon the ground [00:47:02] brilliant and then we're going to swap into mommy and the two phrases call TRO ha [00:47:11] beautiful and meet him mana so [00:47:25] we he [00:47:28] whoa [00:47:31] whoa VD nation and Cross the wide [00:47:40] wide creation we won't kneel down.
