Many anticipate the campaigning on the postal survey will get ugly. Offensive posters have already appeared in numerous capital cities and dishonest ads aired on television. Victorian school principals have been advised to support upset children ... This spreading of misinformation and hate is only expected to intensify over the next two months. 

RESPECT—A Queer Affair is about love, hope and, of course, respect. It is an art exhibition and schedule of community events aiming to counteract the negative messaging targeted to the LGBTIQ+ community—especially the youth—and bringing it and its supporters together in a time of disharmony and discord. 


Over a two-week period in November, RESPECT—A Queer Affair will:

1. Provide a community space to celebrate all things LGBTIQ+ to coincide with the postal survey on marriage equality.

2. Send out positive messages to the LGBTIQ+ and broader community encouraging respect in all forms. 

3. Raise money for Minus18, a youth-led not-for-pro t organisation improving lives of LGBTIQ+ youth through self-empowerment and social inclusion. 


Gallery commission on artwork sales generated by RESPECT—A Queer Affair exhibition will be donated to Minus18, Australia’s largest youth-led organisation promoting social inclusion for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex youth.
