It is with great pleasure that we invite you to this exciting showcase of talent by two artists from the LGBTIQ+ community. Both artists will highlight aspects of their work, influences and gender expressions of the self in creative spaces.

Outside of their clinical roles, Asiel is an academic at The University of Melbourne, where their work in medical education has been recognised through a Staff Excellence Award in Diversity and Inclusion from the Faculty of Medicine. They frequently lecture on LGBTQIA+ health, transgender health, and safe and inclusive practice.
