Hi eveybody!

I hope you're all excited about the Sydney Mardi Gras! I know I am. I'm marching with a group of about 25-ish trans people, crossdressers, genderqueers, etc and other assorted family and friends.

Here are the details one last time:

Where: HYDE PARK

When: 4PM on SATURDAY the 7th

Look for: GREEN SHIRTS THAT SAY "GENDER RIGHTS ARE HUMAN RIGHTS" (on the back)

What if I can't find you in the park?: CALL 0404905100 (Robyn) or 0408922699 (Ryan)

Can I bring a friend?: YES!

Do I have to be trans?: No. A bunch of us are trans, but we welcome anyone who thinks trannies are awesome!

Do you have fabulous trans rights placards?: SUPER FABULOUS!

Does it cost anything?: If you can spare $15 to cover our expenses (such as, for example, buying you a fabulous green t-shirt) that'd be nice. Otherwise, we'll understand, you can still march with us.

Should I bring anything?: Bring water, or money to buy overpriced botted water. Maybe a snack. You'll be waiting hours for the parade to start and I don't want anybody collapsing halfway down Oxford Street.

Love,
Robyn.

Hi everybody!

A group of transsexual/transgender/crossdresser/genderqueer/etc people and our friends and partners are going to join the parade under the name "Tranny Panic!" with a general trans rights/trans pride theme. If you want to walk with us (come on, it's lots of fun!) then please email me at baglieg@gmail.com.

If you have a short snappy transsexual/transgender/crossdresser/genderqueer/etc related slogan you'd like to see on a placard, you can email me that too!

The parade is on the evening of the 7th of March. To be part of the parade you have to be there several hours before the parade starts, so plan to be in Sydney all afternoon. Book accommodation early if you're from out of town like me.

Love,
Robyn.
 
 
Hi folks,

Pervy performance, rocking music, seedy side show entertainment and debauchery for all you misfits, queers and trans folk!

Topping off Gasworks’ Midsumma season the Upstart Alley troupe brings you another raucous performance party, teeming with dazzling displays of bent pervy performance, gender piracy and rocking tunes. Step right up for an action packed show from performers from near and far including Kellijean Drinkwater (Syd), Yumi Umiumare, Wes Snelling, Kaboobie (Adel), The Bad Father (Adel) and music from psychobilly rockers The Vaudevillains, DJ Linx and more!

Upstart Alley VIII boasts a grimy vaudeville style show featuring seedy side show entertainment and rocking live music. Belt yourselves into your seats to witness spectacular feats of gender defiance and glamorous rebellion by our outstanding and outlandish performers. Upstart Alley has been rockin Melbourne audiences for the last two years, jump starting thoughts and libidos. We refuse to force people into ill-fitting gender (or other) categories and create spaces where the whole range of identities bump and grind against each other and redefine and mess with the binaries that box us all in.

Hi all!

A Gender Agenda are doing a survey of intersex, transsexual, transgender, crossdresser, genderqueer, gender diverse, etc people.

Please do the survey! It's on the net here.

While you're at it, we'd love it if you distribute the link to people you know, it is:
http://www.surveymethods.com/EndUser.aspx?AB8FE3FCA8EEFDFE

Please note, that the survey is for people in the ACT and surrounding regions. If you are not within 50km of the ACT, please don't fill in the survey, as we'll just have to discard your answers anyway, and that would suck.

We're hoping to do a national survey if this one is a success, so you will be heard eventually :)

Anyway, here's the official blurb from our coversheet/flyer.Collapse )
We thank you for taking the time to complete this survey.

If you would like any further information, please email us at admin@agenderagenda.org.au or survey@agenderagenda.org.au
