Helping people help themselves
From Hermione to Human Rights: Emma Watson has hit adulthood with aplomb.
Greg Foyster brings us the hot facts about heatwaves, which kill more people in Australia than any other natural disaster. Maggie Baron recalls the devastating impact of one fateful heatwave on her own family. Glenn Dunks charts the gay rights movement on screen, from subculture to the mainstream. And in ‘Roving Eye’, we look at the highs and lows of 2014 through the lens of the World Press Photo Contest.

Starring in this edition’s ‘Vendor Profile’ is Pat from Perth.

We also have a lovely picture and letter from vendor Stephen in Brisbane, looking happy in his Big Issue gear.
