On March 10, 2009, three days after Mardi Gras,Veronica Baxter was arrested by Redfern police and held on remand at the all-male NSW Silverwater Metropolitan Reception and Remand Centre. Six days later, after a 14-hour break between checking her cell, she was found dead, hanging in her single cell.

Tuesday 6th April – Population Ministers to Trans Youth

Alex and Nick are away in Tasmania so this week Kat and Josh joined me to talk about some of the big news in Australian Politics. We discussed Rudd’s appointment of Tony Burke as a new Population Minister and how creepy we all thought it was. Josh told us all about Tony Abbott’s recent backpedal about gays, Kat let us know about changes to the U.S’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy in the military and I discussed the case of Maggy in Stawell, a nine year old trans kid who’s doing it tough at her local Primary School. We had a couple of questions about that story so I have added some links below if you’d like more info:
