Celebrate IDAHOBIT with Sam Elkin

Sam Elkin

Event Date: 16 May 2024 07:00 PM
Author / Presenters: Sam Elkin
Ticket Price: Free

Sam Elkin's new book 'Detachable Penis: a Queer Legal Saga' relates his bumpy journey from lesbian to transgender lawyer in the aftermath of the 2017 marriage equality vote. Sam was the first lawyer in Victoria's queer law service and found himself at the pointy end of debates about trans inclusion in sport, children's access to puberty blockers, birth certificate law reform and the Christian right's demand for enhanced religious freedoms. Sam offers an honest, unflinching account of chest surgery, phalloplasty, the emotional impact of cross-sex hormones and the perils of airport body scanners. Part love letter and part cautionary tale, join Sam for a thought-provoking conversation. Under 18s will need to book with parental consent. Delivered in partnership with Knox City Council.
