Last week I had the pleasure of attending six ceremonies for Victoria’s biggest graduation ever—over 3000 students were awarded qualifications.

It might start as an itch or a rash. Maybe you’ve got some gross goo, or your downstairs smells a bit iffy. STIs are common, generally a lot less scary than you think, and are usually very treatable if you get on it early. Even if you used a condom you should book a free […]

Why is it that we turn to sad, melancholic music when we’re going through heartache, turn up “Eye of the Tiger” before a football match or afternoon run, find the classical music station on Spotify when we’re writing essays, and listen to Beyoncé on repeat when are power-walking to the bus or fighting evening traffic […]

What happens when you have an agenda, then someone bigger and more powerful than you offers to help, but actually they end up shutting you out of the causes and communities you love? As it becomes more and more acceptable to be queer in society, capitalist entities are moving to cash in on the ‘queer […]

To my friends who have been saying things like “Sharon you met him once” and “you don’t actually know him” and “you’re a huge creep,” congratulations, you’ve won. Your constant nagging has finally sunk in. I’m “moving on.” And to my real friends who egged me on through my many delusions, I could have never […]

A column on marginalised sports could well be a column on women in sports. Yet in writing this bi-weekly segment I’ve hardly mentioned women, apart from the tendency of professional—male—footballers to sleep with them.
