Invisibility is Not Justice: a Lesson From Anti-Racism for LGBTIQ+ Allies

I’m writing from my hometown – so-called Fremantle – which is really Walyalup on Whadjuk-Noongar country. Throughout my life, I haven’t thought enough about that. I’m also writing from my soft, young, white (Croatian, Chilean, Australian) queer body. A body that is comfortably cis-female and simultaneously rejects gender identification with fervent force – if that’s…

Will I Need It?

After ‘What Every Woman Should Carry’ by Maura Dooley My first love gave me a lighter that was broken. I don’t smoke so I packed: a spare teabag, a pair of socks (they’re his – size 8), the morning after pill (in date – just), a book to pretend to read in case there is…

On a Scale of 1 to 10: Living With Endometriosis

It’s taking all of my energy to write this. As someone who writes a lot on good days, that feels strange to say. But I’m deliberately writing this on a bad day in the midst of a devastating low to capture how I’m feeling. I’m in the middle of an endometriosis pain flare. What does…

Why I’m Not Having Biological Children – Even Though I Can

“So, when are the kids coming?”“They’re coming when you stop asking me that.” This isn’t true, but it shuts them up long enough. “Are you getting married so young because you’re pregnant?”“I’m getting married so young because it’s none of your damn business.” I’d barely made it down the aisle before I started getting berated…

I Am No Longer Afraid To Spit Fire

“Tell me where you feel it.” commands the psychologist. I place my hand on my chest, right at the top of my sternum. “In here,” I reply. “What does it feel like?” “Um... it just feels very tight,” I answer. I could tell her it feels like my chest is being compressed, compounded and then…

Menstruation Frustration and Great Expectation

I got my first period a month before I started high school. It was 2008 and I was 12 years old. I was the first out of all my friends and wore my pad like a badge of honour. I was proud to be a baby woman, taking my first steps towards adulthood with a…

Preparing for the goodbye party

Heart and Hands

Popular culture is obsessed and saturated with love. Especially romantic love. From Valentine’s Day to rom-coms, it seems that nothing pulls our heartstrings quite so tenderly. We learn and internalise the narrative of romantic love from an early age; it is something that we are taught to seek and experience. But there are other expectations…

Artistry Challenge Week 4: It’s All in the Hair

Hair. Some women wear it as a symbol of femininity or cultural solidarity, or to comply with the normative practices of their society or subculture. Others wear it as a bold political statement, to rebut gender norms or a means to get close to, or away from, trending fashions.  Hair carries personal, cultural, and religious…

The Decade Challenge: My Ten Years With An Eating Disorder

In my childhood kitchen, there were four stacked drawers. The top three were orderly, their contents organised and pristine: polished silverware, freshly laundered tea towels and neatly nested bowls. The bottom drawer, however, juxtaposed those above it. It was the candy drawer, and upon opening it one would be subjected to an avalanche of sugar.…

Latin Lies in the Land of the Colonisers

When I was 18, I decided I wanted to leave, go far away from my little town in my little country of El Salvador. I wanted to fulfil my dream of studying Fine Arts away from the limitations of my conservative family and society. However, I never imagined that the act of leaving the place…
