Brief description This project aims to trace the emergence of transgender identities in Australia since the early twentieth century. Using oral histories, archives and media, the project intends to analyse shifting medical, legal, cultural and popular discourses about transgenderism, as well as study how evolving societal attitudes have affected the lives of gender diverse people. By revealing transgender people’s histories, the project will explore the ways gender diverse Australians have expressed their identities amidst changing social norms. The expected outcomes will inform current debates about transgender rights, healthcare provision and social inclusion.
