Artist statement

My passion is to expose the amazing lives of Indigenous people, especially those whose sexuality and age prevents them from using their talent. In particular I am interested in how truth is influenced by image and how indigenous gay women have been represented in film and media.  I would like to create gay guerrilla artwork from a race perspective.

JUST HARRY COMMENTS FROM KAURNA ELDER,
STEPHEN GADLABARTI GOLDSMITH
The unconditional love shown from Harry Senior, the father of the subject of the documentary, is inspirational.
The issues raised in the documentary need to be talked about and understood- especially for young people and their families. It’s great to see Harry Junior, an Aboriginal person highlighting the ‘big white elephant’
