“Right on, sister!” | Episode 6

“Right on, sister!” | Episode 6

By Tash Walker, Adam Zmith and Shivani Dave

Lipstick on the windscreen to tackle homophobia — just one of the stories in this latest episode from 1983 to 1991. Tash and Adam focus on the hostility in the air during this period, from people using HIV/AIDS as a reason for their prejudice to tensions within Catholic families. We conclude by speaking to Hafsa Qureshi about her experience as a bisexual Muslim woman today.

Content warning: attacks on LGBTQ+ people and biphobia.
