La Trobe University academics will confront a number of issues that continue to exist in our society. Taking place on Tuesday 26 March, during Pride Week at the Melbourne Campus, the five dynamic talks will aim to shift perceptions.

In less than 15 minutes each, presenters will get the audience thinking about homophobia in schools, sexuality and diversity of older GLBTI people, positive reframing of GLBTI, intercultural gender perception and listen in on a conversation on the last 40 years of homosexuality.

A highlight of the program will be Professor Dennis Altman, Professorial Fellow in Human Security, in conversation with Dr Carolyn D’Cruz, Lecturer in GSD studies.

Forty years ago, Dennis Altman published Homosexual: Oppression and Liberation. Four decades later, Dr D'Cruz and Professor Altman will reflect on what has and has not changed around sexualities since the book was published.

The Big Fat Ideas program is designed to challenge global audiences to think differently about an issue of local, national or global significance.
