Summer Series: Benjamin Law

In our second episode of our Summer Series, we revisit Katherine’s conversation with Benjamin Law.

Benjamin Law is the author of The Family Law, Gaysia, the Quarterly Essay: Moral Panic 101 and editor of Growing up Queer in Australia. He created and co-wrote three seasons of the award winning SBS TV series The Family Law and wrote the sold-out MTC play Torch the Place. He co-hosts Stop Everything! on the ABC’s Radio National and interviews public figures for Good Weekend.

Benjamin and Katherine discuss his rules for writing about family, why writing letters to the editor can be misleadingly lucrative and what he thinks about when he writes humour.
