He’s an educator, author, and Head Ninja at the National Institute for Challenging Homophobia Education. Daniel Witthaus hails from Geelong in Victoria so knows what it is like to be a young gay teenager in regional Australia. He has been at the forefront of anti-homophobia education for many years and recently spent nine months travelling around Australia in an ‘openly gay truck’ called Bruce to spread his message. The result is his new book ‘Beyond Priscilla, one gay man, one gay truck, one big idea’. It chronicles his journey around the country, engaging with locals about what it means to be gay and how  to move beyond the stereotypes of that famous film.

Event Location: Victorian AIDS Council Building, 6 Claremont Street, South Yarra. The entrance is at the side of the building. Just ring the door bell and we will come and let you in. You are welcome to join us afterwards at La Porchetta, Toorak Rd South Yarra.

7.15pm for a 7.30pm start. For more information or any queries please email [email protected] or call Linda on 0430045585
