With inspired speeches from The Commissioner for LGBTIQA+ people, Todd Fernando and our patron Anne Tudor OAM (she/her), Victorian senior of the year; as well as a keynote address from Eideann (they/them) president of the Queer Collective at Australian Catholic University, we will hear stories of resilience and passion.
