In Transition


From Laverne Cox to Andreja Pejić and The Danish Girl, trans themes and celebrities have never been more visible. But, Cerise Howard asks, is this actually evidence of broader social inclusion? And – famous role models aside – Kate Doak pays tribute to the trans women who’ve really been there for her.

In ‘Taxing Times’, Michael Epis delves into one of the most important, and most confusing, issues of the upcoming election; Helen Razer flounders in a sea of choices; The Living End keeps on living, with their new album Shift; and in Roving Eye, former editor Alan Attwood farewells Lonsdale Street, the Melbourne office The Big Issue magazine has called home for 20 years.

We have Streetsheet contributions from Julie and Steve in Brisbane; Daniel K and Luke M in Adelaide; Pat L and Tina from Perth; and Matthew H from Sydney. We also have a happy pelican snap taken by Melbourne vendor Stephen B while he was fishing in Williamstown.
