The events of the past week have us angry, frustrated, and exhausted. We sit with that, and with the knowledge that it’s been happening for a long time. But also that this very public reckoning means things are different, the conversation is shifting. As our leaders offer statements that diminish the experiences of survivors, Australian of the Year Grace Tame’s speech at the National Press Club is a hopeful and rallying call, and huge call out on how we discuss and deal with sexual abuse. In more joyful news, the permanent judge for Ru Paul’s Drag Race Down Under has been ru-vealed, and Dolly has finally been vaccinated. Wait till you see the video. The Golden Globes went down this week too (!) and we unpack the most important elements: the fashion. And we’re banging on about wonderful stuff to watch on the big and small screen, including Globe winner Nomadland.
