‘Since early August our community has been on edge, pushing our allies to enrol and then imploring the majority to afford rights to a minority.’ says James Connolly, the President of the ANU Students’ Association.

The Queer* Day of Solidarity was held on Thursday 26 October at the Australian National University. Woroni TV interviews key organisers and activists including Tess Corkish, James Connolly, and Richard Baker.
