Miles of Love: Adelaide: Miles of Love Forum, Mixer and Film Night
November 16 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 pm
A day of events about LGBTIQA+ travel!
Travel Advocacy Forum – Tandanya (9:00am)
Trans in Dubai? Gay in Brunei? Whiteness and travel privilege? Safe travel can be a luxury. The Miles of Love Forum brings together leaders and activists from across the world to share their travel experiences and challenges, and to discuss topics such as ‘pink washing’, forced displacement and LGBTIQA+ inclusion within the airline and travel industries. In the evening there will be a film screening and mixer event. Miles of Love will imagine new approaches to travel that bridge the divide between the promise and the reality.
Official Opening Mixer – Sparkke at the Whitmore (5:30pm)
Come and meet some of our amazing global activists as we celebrate the official launch of ‘Miles of Love’ in Australia.
Short Films & Fireside (included in ticket price of the Forum) – Sparkke at the Whitmore (7:00pm)
Join us for a screening of two award-winning films, followed by a Fireside Chat with local and global refugees, activists and experts.
