Image by Simon le GAM, Alert by Shinen Wong I have been talking a lot with White people And I need to decolonise myself To write about my experience of being A Gay Asian man Without reflecting all of myself In their eyes. This is “Double Consciousness”… W. E. B. Du Bois, An African American writer and philosopher through the values of the “straight” world; “Hetero-centric” values: I have been inculcated with This Seeing the world through a lens riddled with ideas of Male and Female Masculine and Feminine Yin and Yang In heterosexual union… But I also have the unique consciousness of my own homosexual development... speaks of the Double Consciousness of being black and American, A “sense of always looking at one-self through the eyes of others, Of measuring one’s soul by the tape of a world that looks on in amused contempt and pity.” As a gay man, I have the Double Consciousness of knowing and understanding and being able to see the world One that sees the potential of union between Male and Male Masculine and Masculine Yang and Yang Or that there is the inherent “Both-ness” within myself That I can be Masculine and Feminine Mummy’s boy and Daddy’s girl Muscle Stud and Drag Queen... This Double Consciousness is both a blessing as well as the eternal curse of never being able to truly represent myself in a way that will ever come close to a mainstream understanding of Authenticity. I have only this Dance between lenses… I inhabit multiple worlds From business boardroom to public toilet Family gathering to sex club And all the way, I bring with me the Fear and the Triumph Of being so split. as Other Than Australian, And being uncertain, therefore of what right I have to be here, Though rights be so granted by powerful abstractions Such as nation-state or local jurisdiction... The power and freedom to get jobs and retain them without fear of deportation While occasionally wondering if I will be seen truly as Me And not interchangeable by name with some other Asian colleague. Also: I am an Asian man And an Australian citizen, in an Australian society that sees me as International student; Eternal immigrant; No matter my ancestry nor my descendants… While that may change yet, and has indeed changed for so many Asian communities in Australia before me and since, There is this Double Consciousness Of seeing the world as an Australian, yet being seen by other Australians So I am bitter, Yes As medicine... I do not carry with me any false humility, No... I have known strength and power and privilege and love and acceptance and equality and respect and True humility. We may continue to struggle for awhile yet.. Fingers crossed; I forge ahead until this Truth is easily uncoverable again by All of us For all the fog of a history That is still being written.

The more partners you have, the more often you should get tested for HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Every 3 – 6 months is a good idea if you are having casual sex. By knowing your sexual health status, you and your partners can make informed choices about the sex you want. Did You Know?

You have the right to say yes! Image by EDMUND EDWARDS I was born in Malaysia. My parents are both Malaysian-born Chinese also. My mother was born in a small village and my father was born in Ipoh. My family moved to Melbourne in 1989 when I was 3 years old. Unfortunately, I do not speak any other languages but English. I consider myself Chinese Australian. When people ask where I am from, I answer, “I was born in Malaysia. “ Overseas, I answer “Australia.” Growing up here, I have been blessed to experience both Eastern and Western cultures. Every year my family celebrates Chinese New Year, and by attending schools in Australia I experienced Christmas and Easter. My parents always wanted me to finish high school, go to uni, get a stable job, make money and work till the day I die. I know my parents mean well, but I grew up in a generation where we were encouraged to try new things. To do what we love. They came from a generation where you needed a good job to live. After I graduated high school I wanted to study media, while my parents wanted me to do a business degree. So I compromised. I did a business arts degree and majored in Marketing and Media. I have always been interested in films. Like most children I grew up in front of the television. But what I found fascinating were the stories. I love a strong narrative, being able to tell the same story in a different and unique way. That’s what filmmakers do. The first thing that got me any recognition in the media world was releasing my web series “Friends and Benefits”. This 21-part web series tells the story a young gay man named Ben who lives in Melbourne and goes online dating looking for love. I wanted to make a show that any gay person could relate to. The series has won the award for Best LGBT Film at the New Media Film Festival San Francisco Bay Area 2011. It was also a finalist in the ALSO Foundation’s ‘Take Care Out There Film Festival’ in Melbourne’s Midsumma festival this year. I moved to Sydney to obtain a role in the film industry. I currently work for a company that bonds film and television shows. I have also started my own independent production company, ‘Kameo Media’. I want to show my parents that I don’t need to have a boring and stable job to be successful. I can lead a fulfilled life and succeed by following my dreams. CHRISTOPHER Image by EDMUND EDWARDS I grew up in a small town called Ipoh in Malaysia and moved to Sydney when I was 19 to pursue my music career. Since then I’ve released a 4 track EP, completed an Australian tour last year and recently released my debut single and music video. I have always been quite musical. I started playing the piano and violin when I was 7 and since I moved to Sydney I fell in love with indie- pop and electronic music. That’s how I got into writing and recording my first EP. I’m a proud Asian hipster who is not afraid of being seen out and outrageous in public with a bottle of Tequila. I think the world would be a better place if we stop over-analysing things and just have fun with the things we do. DYAN

  14. 14. Contents Who we are and what we do? 3 ASC’s vision, mission and values 11 Our goals for 2010 – 2013 13 How will we evaluate our success? 19 “It was the only place I had to go – they were the only friendsI had. I knew no one in Australia. I came everyday.” Asylum Seeker 1 2 As a country that values justice, decency, and integrity, Australia has a responsibility to support an international response to refugee protection that includes a wide spectrum of initiatives, from addressing root causes of violence and persecution to providing safety to people in need of protection. One of the most important principles of international human rights law is the principle of non-refoulement. Under this principle, countries are bound not to return a person who has a well founded fear of persecution or who will face torture or any form of cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment to their country of origin. The validity of an asylum seeker’s claim for protection has nothing to do with how they arrive in a country – by boat or by plane – but everything to do with the persecution they are escaping. The number of people seeking asylum in Australia is extremely small compared to other Western countries and of those who do seek asylum, the majority of these arrive on valid visas. Under Australian law, people are allowed to remain in the community while their application for a protection visa is being assessed. It is these individuals and families who are ASC’s clients. During the course of many years, the ASC has advocated strongly along with sector partners for Australia’s fairer treatment of asylum seekers and the more efficient processing of their claims. In 2009–2010 we saw significant progress in Australia towards legislative and regulatory reform in a number of policy areas that affect asylum seekers: Work rights – on 1st July 2009 the ‘45-day rule’ was repealed. This regulation denied work rights and access to Medicare to those who have been in Australia for more than 45 days before they applied for protection. Many of those caught by this arbitrary rule were forced into destitution and ill-health. The regulation change institutes most welcome reform for asylum seekers allowing clients the basic right to self support and decreasing their reliance on charitable organisations. Detention debts – on 18th September 2009, the government abolished immigration detention debts for asylum seekers. This will lessen the level of financial disadvantage experienced by asylum seekers exiting detention, some of whom have been clients of the Asylum Seekers Centre. Further, it is significant to note that since 2008, there has been a rise in the number of asylum seekers globally. This is due to the ‘push factors’ of continuing violence in Sri Lanka, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia and Sudan, combined with a lack of protection for these people within their own region. In the ongoing debate about asylum seekers, ASC has an important role in ensuring that the attention remains focused on human rights, not on politics. The current context 9 10 Our core activities The ASC has five full-time equivalent staff and a network of more than 100 volunteers.

  17. 17. The vision of the Australian Charities Fund is to facilitate unprecedented levels of giving through the workplace. Since its establishment in 2003, more than $50 million has been donated to community organisations through workplace giving programs facilitated by the Australian Charities Fund. This has been a great start but we believe an enormous untapped potential remains to grow this stream of giving for the benefit of employers, employees and the community. About 12 months ago, The Australian Charities Fund embarked on a groundbreaking research project with the objective of finding out how employee participation in workplace giving programs could be increased. This has involved interviewing and surveying thousands of individuals about what motivates them to connect to the community through their workplace. The result is a wealth of learning and insights we believe will help change the landscape of workplace giving in Australia. Importantly, the publication of this report is a beginning rather than an end. We have significant learning and insights. We now encourage our employer and community partners to work with us to move workplace giving to a new level, for greater community outcomes. The Australian Charities Fund is proud to have led this research project and is very grateful for the support provided to it by ANZ, Bain & Company, the Centre for Social Impact, Goldman Sachs JBWere and Mallesons Stephen Jaques. Edward Kerr Chief Executive Officer The Australian Charities Fund November 2009 54 I am delighted that the Centre for Social Impact has been a research partner in this important study. It tells us something new. By showing that the donations made by employees to charities through payroll deductions are additional to their existing contributions – and, indeed, encourage further donations – the true value of workplace giving is revealed. This evidence should act as a catalyst to employers, charities and governments to work together to promote workplace giving as a significant way to fund community enterprise. Peter Shergold Macquarie Group Foundation Professor Centre for Social Impact November 2009 Foreword © the australian Charities Fund 16 17 7 in 10 donors said they signed up to workplace giving soon after being introduced to the program. this shows the importance of: • how employers launch their workplace giving program, • putting the workplace giving program before employees as soon as possible after they join the organisation, • timing “The Ask” after communications or presentations introducing the program; and • capitalising on the momentum and emotional connection generated through emergency appeals by seeking to convert one-off donors to ongoing workplace giving donors. employees made it clear they did not feel coerced to join their organisation’s workplace giving program. only 1.9% of donors said they joined because they felt they couldn’t say no, and only 3.7% said they joined because “a colleague encouraged me to participate”. this suggests there is little ground for the concern among some organisations’ senior leaders that employees may feel pressured to donate. It also suggests there is more scope to use peer champions to build awareness and recruit donors. When did you join the workplace giving program? Good intentions: why some donors are more enthusiastic about workplace giving We were interested in identifying how to encourage existing donors to promote workplace giving within their organisation. Working with the bain & Company Global Customer Insights Group, we used the net promoter score® tool (for more information on nps visit www.netpromoter.com) which looks at the likelihood someone will recommend a brand, company or concept to a colleague (or friend). the net promoter enables us to track groups of customers, or in our case donors, to measure how their employer’s workplace giving programs is performing through their eyes. donors are divided into three categories, based on the question “How likely would you be to recommend your organisation’s workplace giving program to a colleague?” Donors respond on a 0-to-10 point rating scale and and responded as follows. 1 in 3 Non-Donors Prefer to Donate Outside the Workplace “You feel much better about your job when your organisation enables you to do something worthwhile in the community. There’s a sense of pride being involved.” 24 24 “My wife and I had a perception we were quite charitable. When we looked at workplace giving, we worked out what percentage of our earnings went to charity. We were surprised when it was less than 1%. For us giving through work or from home as a family wasn’t an either/or proposition. Workplace giving encouraged us to realise we could give more.” Key partners supported by For 75% of donors, their total charitable giving has increased as a result of participating in workplace giving.

Milton can. “Our baby daughter, Danielle, was just two weeks old when we were given the most heart wrenching news: she had an inoperable brain tumour. To then be told she had no more than a day to live made it even more unbearable.” Jennifer Boothby Dear <salutation> We are pleased to enclose the December issue of CURE, keeping you up to date with Foundation’s activities over last quarter. You’ll get to spend five minutes with a neurosurgeon as well as find out how much we raised from our recent events includingWalk4Life and our inaugural Lunch4Life and Golf Day. There is also a calendar of events to update your diary with such as our Gala Ball on Saturday 4 May and other events that the community are holding to raise funds to accelerate a cure. For some children, there’s more to Christmas than Santa. Over the holiday season, it’s an opportunity to spend time with our families and friends celebrating and looking forward to the NewYear but we also shouldn’t forget how hard this time of the year is for those families that have a loved one with brain cancer or lost someone to this devastating disease, especially a child as brain cancer is the no. 1 cause of cancer-related deaths in children. One such family is Jennifer and Reece Boothby. At two weeks of age, their baby daughter Danielle was diagnosed with a terminal brain cancer and Jennifer and Reece were told that Danielle might only have a few hours to live. Danielle was strong enough to survive a further nine days and her parents tried to fill those days with a lifetime of love. So that no other family would have to go through this pain, Danielle’s parents donated a sample of her brain tissue to a research project that Professor Phil Hogg is running at the Drug Discovery Centre, UNSW.

This will prevent the entry of feral animals and the escape of any Devils. Eight large pens and twenty traditional style pens will also be constructed.Additionally, a food storage room, a food preparation room and a vet care room will be built approximately 4 km from the Devils’ site. the facts Devil Facial Tumor Disease (DFTD) has killed over 85% of Tasmanian Devils and is characterized by horrendous facial cancers. It is extremely unusual as it is only one of two recorded cancers that can spread like a contagious disease. DFTD is such a virulent and aggressive cancer that a seemingly unstoppable epidemic has unfolded in Tasmania. Building Devil Ark is the Tasmanian Devil’s only logical chance of survival. the environment Nestled high in the Barrington Ranges in New South Wales at an altitude of 1,300 metres, Devil Ark is on 500 hectares of fairly flat to gently sloping land that enjoys a cool climate with a relatively high rainfall/snowfall. These environmental conditions are ideal because they are very similar to those experienced by the Tasmanian Devil in its natural habitat. These distinctive Australian marsupials will thrive in this environment. devil ark at a glance Donate today to ensure the survival of the tasmanian devil Aerial view and detailed plans for Devil Ark FA3529_Map Brochure FA2.indd 2 25/11/10 10:36 AM We’ve mapped out... the t will Toensureagainsttheextinction ofoneofAustralia’smostloved creatures,theTasmanianDevil, alargeandgeneticallydiverse populationofDevilsneeds tobeestablishedontheAustralian mainlandandheldincaptivity awayfromthedisease.

  36. 36. Black Devil As told by Kevin Bathman This is my paternal grandfather, Mahalingam Pillai. He was born and bred in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. His ancestry dates back to small town called Tajavur in Tamil Nadu district, Southern India. My paternal grandmother, Ang Ah Hee was adopted into a traditional Baba Nyonya family. In 1930, my grandfather met her and they had dated secretly. He later wooed her into marriage in 1935. This infuriated my grandmother Ang’s father. He was against the idea of her marrying an Indian man with dark skin. He even nicknamed my grandfather ‘Hak Kuai’, which meant Black Devil.
  37. 37. Vixen Noir is an erotic performance and burlesque artist, dancer, actress, poetess, singer as well as director, producer, choreographer, teacher and filmmaker. She has been wowing audiences internationally with her sexy jaw-dropping performances for over 17 years. She integrates her extensive dance and theatre background to create performances that range from sublime to raucous, raunchy to seductive, titillating to beautiful, and that are artistically compelling and visually stimulating. Her work embodies a commitment to claim erotic power, build bridges across racial, social and economic divides and celebrate the diversity of gender expression. Vixen’s performances are unapologetically sexual and inspire others to revel in their own sexual power. One of Vixen’s most notable claims is as founder and former Artistic Director of liquidFIRE Productions, a San Francisco-based non-profit organization dedicated to the authentic representation of lesbians and queer women of colour on stage (1997 ? 2006). She was the mastermind behind the organization’s theatre company, The liquidFIRE Project, whose original productions focused on erotic power; and the always sold-out queer erotic cabaret, WET, which featured strip, burlesque, poetry, performance art, spoken word, comedy and musical acts. As Artistic Director of Luna Sea Women’s Performance Project in San Francisco from 1995 to 1998, Vixen produced and directed several festivals and theatre productions including Women of Colour Month which featured Juke Joint, Sistahs Singin’ and the first incarnations of The Liquid Fire Project; Disputed Territory, featuring performances that addressed gender identity and the sex work industry; and the 1996 production of Skin: the Black and White of It in which African American and White lesbians explored racism. In 2001, Vixen created the workshop series, Unleash Your Fire, designed to empower women to awaken, reclaim and celebrate their ‘erotic power’ through the medium of erotic performance. In 2008, after years of refining UYF methods and to further her goals of empowering women in their sexuality all over the world, Vixen created Unleash Your Fire Erotic Performance Academy for Women, which offers seasonal courses. Vixen has facilitated workshops throughout the USA and Australia. Most recently, Vixen toured her one-woman show, Sweet Deliverance in Australia (Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane) February - March 2009; she is the co-producer and co-host of Cabaret D’Nude, a queer girl and trans strip joint; and the founder and director of Unleash Your Fire Erotic Performance Academy for Women. She is also working on her full-length narrative film, Unlikely Soul. ABOUT Vixen Noir
