The Isabelle Lake Memorial Lecture is an annual collaboration between the University of Western Australia and the Equal Opportunity Commission of Western Australia. It honours the work and achievements of the late Ms Isabelle Lake, a young trans rights activist, former employee of the Commission, and a University of Western Australia student. These lectures aim to honour Ms Lake’s work and draw attention to the issues faced by transsexual, transgender, intersex and gender diverse people.
This year’s lecture will be held in the UWA Ross Lecture Theatre from 5.30pm to 7.30pm on Thursday 17 May to mark IDAHOBIT (International day against homophobia, biphobia, intersexism and transphobia).
The lecture will be given by Cr Tony Briffa who will speak about her life experiences as intersex.
After the lecture, Cr Briffa is looking forward to interacting with the audience with a Q&A session.
Light refreshments will be served from 5:30pm before the lecture starts at 6pm.
Please RSVP for the Isabelle Lake Memorial Lecture on the Trybooking website.
