On February 19, 2015 the Forum for Indigenous Research Excellence (FIRE) at the University of Wollongong in New South Wales, Australia, hosted Australia’s first Indigenous LBGTIQ symposium, Cultured Queer/Queering Culture: Indigenous Perspectives on Queerness. The symposium ignited considerable interest both from attendees and from those who were unable to attend but are interested in accessing the presentations as teaching resources. This edition of the Journal of Global Indigeneity builds on the interest generated during and since the symposium by offering readers a range of resources that include the recording of each presentation accompanied by a peer reviewed paper and a recorded interview with each presenter. This issue continues the momentum of the symposium. We are happy to offer contributions as an accessible resource for interested parties, students, and importantly, for Indigenous people and communities across the world.
