Panel Discussion – South Asian Representation in Australian Media

From cultural biases to stereotypes and systematic barriers such as lack of portrayal, South Asian artists for years are debating their stance in the Australian media industry. It need not always be subject to ignorance of race, but also the big question, “Who gets to tell our stories on national television?”

Deconstructing this conversation via their own personal and professional experiences we have renowned Indian-Australian Actor, Presenter, Lawyer, Writer and Podcaster – Sharon Johal, former Miss Universe Australia 2019 – Priya Serrao, Celebrity Chef and Hospitality entrepreneur – Helly Raichura and Melbourne-based Screenwriter & Film Producer – Ravi Chand on our celebrated guest panel, sharing their journeys as representatives of South Asian origin in the media.

Panel Discussion – Spirituality, Sexuality, Gender Diversity & Love

Every member of the Queer community has fought the battle of dwindling between practising their faith and owning their sexuality. While for many the idea of faith and spirituality shunned the acceptance of the LGBTQIA+ community, some found a way to bridge this by following their faith while keeping true to their sexuality. This conversation opened a pandora of questions where can faith, gender diversity, love and sexuality fit in the same sentence. Speaking with few members, we have a robust panel of members from the community sharing their personal experience of finding the key to integrate faith, sexuality and gender identity.
