The National Institute for Challenging Homophobia Education (NICHE) has launched a fantastic campaign in Australia. ‘YourStory’ is an animated vignette telling stories from LGBTI people from regional, rural and remote Australia.
For these animation, Gay equality educator and advocate Daniel Witthaus collected the stories of LGBTI people around Australia. The stories collected were then brought to life by illustrator/cartoonist, Kenton Penley Miller, and award-winning filmmaker Jonathan Duffy (The Doctor’s Wife). Voice artist, Emma Gibbs and production assistant Christian Bürkle round out the small yet committed team who have brought these stories to life.
‘L’ is the first letter in LGBTI, and the first installment tells the story of ‘Mini’, a lesbian from rural Australia. See it below.The first video tells the story of ‘Mini’, a lesbian from rural Australia.
Their hope is that these stories will inspire more LGBTI people to share their stories online in either a visual, cartoon and/or animated way.
Rural Australia is filled with LGBTI individuals who stay, live and grow in their communities instead of heading to the “big smoke”.
The way that NICHE sees it, the more stories that the lives of LGBTI people outside of metropolitan centres the better, and we couldn’t agree more.
This week we will share the other videos – Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex which complete the LGBTI set.
