Despite the looming threat of rain, a large crowd gathered in Newtown’s Pride Square for the Trans Day of Resistance rally and march. The event was organised by Pride in Protest, the National Union of Students, and the USyd Queer Action Collective (QuAC). QuAC Convenor Jamie Bridge chaired the rally, reading Queering the Map entries from Gaza and other areas in Palestine in between the speakers. The rally began with a Welcome to Country from Gadigal Elder Uncle Graham Simms. He began by explaining the customary practice of a Welcome to Country. He then spoke about the failure of the Voice referendum, saying that “for us to all walk side by side the truth of this country has to be told first.”
