So Gay, So What?

Today, 17th May 2011, is The International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO). To help celebrate, AYAC staffers uploaded a photo to 'This is Oz'...

This Is Oz is an online photo gallery where people can help fight discrimination against Australia’s gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) community. Part art project, part human rights campaign, This Is Ozis all about making Australia a place where everyone belongs.

So Gay, So What comes from the title of a workshop to be held at AYAC's 2011 Conference
