Tuesday, 19th January, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Last year's MJ Loves Tina, Charlie's Chasing Harry reintroduced a new generation to the 'hypothetical' with a sold out event at Melbourne Town Hall. This year we're travelling to the not-so-distant future for 2022: a queer odyssey - Australia once again has a female PM and she has announced a national GLBTI Rainbow Summit and Jubilee, but the political climate is heating up as sex work, boat people, PrEP, and radical activists are thrown into the mix. 

With a whole new line up of panellists, Adam Richard with be this year's moderator as a mix of media personalities, politicians, community leaders, and medical specialists tackle a range of social issues through an entertaining fictional narrative. 

This year's panel includes:

  • Comedians Denise Scott and Tom Ballard
  • Australian Human Rights Commissioner, Tim Wilson
  • Victoria's First Gender and Sexuality Commisioner, Rowena Allen
  • Writer and Co-founder of The Institute of Many (TIM), Nic Holas
  • Labor Candidate for Melbourne, Sophie Ismail
  • Trans Advocate and VAC Board Member, Aram Hosie
  • Assoc Professor Edwina Wright
  • Northern Territory AIDS & Hepatitis C Council Executive Director Kim Gates
  • JOY 94.9 journalist and broadcaster, Dean Beck
