Questions of sexuality and refugee or migration status remain on the margins of queer and refugee movements, policy and support services.

The first of its kind in Australia, this conference aims to bring together academics, practitioners and LGBTIQ+ people seeking asylum and refugees to discuss pertinent issues of queer forced displacement and foster dialogue between official and unofficial groups invested in research and practice for coordinated solutions and better support of affected populations.

Confirmed keynote speakers include:

  • Professor Eithne Luibheid, University of Arizona
  • Lilith Raza, Queer Refugees Deutschland, Lesbian and Gay Federation Germany
  • Eliana Rubashkyn, Rainbow Path, New Zealand
  • Dr B Camminga, African Centre for Migration & Society, Wits University, South Africa
