Chaired by Liberty Cramer, Chair of UWA’s Inclusion and Diversity Committee.

Anna will provide a current perspective on the use of language and identity terms in Australian culture to stigmatise the LGBTQIA+ community.

A GP for over 25 years, Dr John Terry has worked in Psychiatry, Travel and Emergency Medicine. His practice has afforded extensive experience in working with health challenges of the people of the LGBTQI+ community.
· Aidan Ricciardo, Lecturer in the UWA Law School with interests in the intersection between evidence law and health/medicine.
Aidan will explore the law of bodily autonomy as it affects trans and intersex young people, providing an account of how it has changed over time and how it might reform further in the future.
