Third seminar presenter: Dr Mandy Henningham

Indigenous queer people often experience a conflict in identity, feeling torn between long-standing cultures and new LGBTIQA+ spaces. This autoethnography uses narrative analysis to explore the challenges of living between Indigenous and queer worlds as well as the difficulties in gaining acceptance from multiple cultures.

This discussion uses borderland theory to reflect the nuanced experiences of Indigenous queer people with identity and forefronts the impact of internalised phobias (homophobia, biphobia, and racism) and its impact on performative self-expression of sexual identity, self-sabotage, institutionalized racism and shadeism, and community acceptance, particularly for bi+ sexual identities.
