Three or four years ago, Fallon Gregory downloaded Tinder and matched with someone who was very complimentary — at first. While she was chatting with her match, she became a bit uneasy about how much he kept commenting on her appearance. It was the first time Ms Gregory remembers being racially discriminated against on a dating app.
The second he found out about my heritage, he was gone. What Ms Gregory experienced was an example of sexual racism: a sexual or romantic bias against people based on their race, usually directed at people of colour. Like many other Indigenous Australians, she’s also experienced racist abuse on dating apps, too. It’s believed sexual racism and general racism are linked. A Australian study showed of gay and bisexual men showed a close link between sexual racism and general racist views.

Improving the health status of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples is a longstanding challenge for governments in Australia. While there have been improvements made in some areas since the s notably in reducing high rates of infant mortality 1 overall progress has been slow and inconsistent.

These places are essential for understanding the movement of people in Australia and hold huge value for Indigenous groups. Since September, conflagrations have razed more than million hectares of vegetation, mostly in the eastern states of Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria — one of the largest events on record. These sites show where people lived and how they moved across the landscape over tens of thousands of years, and have helped researchers understand the development of Aboriginal cultural practices, such as making rock art or carving canoes and shields from tree bark.
Researchers are yet to do a formal assessment, but Manne says thousands of Aboriginal sites will have been affected by the fires. The association is now calling on the government to conduct assessments of cultural sites as part of its fire recovery plans. Roberts is concerned about several culturally rich regions that have been subject to extensive fires, such as parts of eastern Victoria in the lands of the Gunaikurnai people.
Sites there date back 20, years to the last ice age.
