Aboriginal Gay, MSM, Sistergirl and Brotherboy Action Plan: Community Survey


Sistergirl Brotherboy def:

“Brotherboys and Sistergirls are unique to Indigenous culture in Australia. Brotherboys and Sistergirls are trans people who are Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander. Affectionate terms originally used between Aboriginal women and men reflecting kinship, the usage of sistergirl and brotherboy terminology is clearly influenced by the diversity of communities, and will often be defined within a community depending on geographical location. Within the sistergirl and brotherboy communities, a sistergirl is an individual assigned male at birth who identifies as female and a brotherboy is an individual assigned female at birth who identifies as male.”

NOTE: This survey is geared towards people living in SA


Five questions to Todd Fernando: this week on IndigenousX

“Through the love of my cultural appreciation tied into my sexuality, I live my life as an activist and advocate for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and LGBTQI advancement – standing on the shoulders of giants who have paved the way for me to be here, for me to exist, and for me to survive.”
