Queer, Transgender and Feminist Writing: Alison Evans, Amy Middleton and Alyena Mohummadally

Podcast from FWF2016: Queer, Transgender and Feminist Writing.

How do queer and feminist writing traditions overlap, and how can they work to support each other? How intersectional is the feminist writing community, and how to increase the visibility of queer and trans feminist writers? Here we consider the current and future state of queer and trans feminist writing in Australia.

‘The interesting history and relationship between feminism and queer politics… has not always intersected so smoothly.’ –Amy Middleton.
