Interview with Alex Norvilas in 2019 by Alex Norvilas( Visual )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Friedrich Alexander (Alex) Norvilas was born in 1958 and loved to play with his girl cousins. His mother who is German does not seem to accept gay people from her comments during his childhood. His father who was Lithuanian did not seem to have any anitpathy towards homosexuality, he just found it odd. Growing up, Alex did not know what homosexuality was about, he got his girlfriend pregnant at 20 and married her. However, Alex had his first male sexual experience at 28 and knew that he had to live a different life from then. His divorce was not amicable and he struggled to leave as he wanted to give his children the best upbringing. He now has two married sons and three grandchildren, now have family holidays with them. Alex came out to his brother first at about 29 or 30. He had to do a course to prepare to tell his parents, especially his mother which he did tell when he was 34. His mother did not display any hate, just felt sorry for him and wanted him to play it down and be straight. Alex felt that being gay made him feel like a lesser person, disenfranchised and subject of criticism. Alex joined the Gay and Lesbian Singers of Western Australia (GALSWA) around 2017 after becoming disenchanted with the gay community, trying to make friends and taking alcohol as a hobby. He loved the activities, the experience of singing in harmony and the concerts and felt good and proud singing at a citizenship ceremony and welcoming people into Australia

Interview with Jacqueline Anne Weinman in 2019 by Jacqueline Anne Weinman( Visual )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Jacqueline (Jackie) Weinman was born in 1962 in Colombo, Sri Lanka. She migrated to Australia when she was 11, with her mother, brother and grandparents because of political climate changes as they were Dutch Burghers, considered privileged. Her parents were divorced when she was five. Music was a big part of her family's life, her mother belonged to The Colombo Singers and her family grew up around rehearsals and performances. I feel that has continued in my life in a way through GALSWA. There were a lot of racism in the 1970s, she had been called names, as a thirteen years old from all girls' school, Holy Family Convent, all very well behaved, to a co-education state school, undisciplined and chaotic. Jackie came out when she was 28, she had crushes on women, her father said it will pass but the feeling never did and one day when she was in the library at 15, she picked up a book on sexuality and read up on Lesbians, and felt that was what she is. Jackie took a while to tell her parents, they did guess it, she was always emotional and crying when she came out and so far, she had no negative response. In the nineties, people are already more exposed to homosexuality too. Coming out was liberating, Jackie had never told anyone her crushes before, being herself, she participated in 1993, Pride march down William Street, feeling liberated. Jackie works in a university which is very supportive. Jackie felt that she is ridiculed more because of her culture and race rather than her sexual inclination. Homosexuality in Sri Lanka was more undercover but she heard it is more prevalent now. When she was engaged once, but she was quite stressed by comments and discussion especially her brother who is very religious. Jackie joined GALSWA in 1996 when the group size was still very small, about 12 but now about 48, Jackie is the longest serving member. One of the highlights is the concert in 2018, "25 years and going strong", looking at how GALSWA has changed over the years. GALSWA provides an inclusive group, getting to sing as a group for mainstream activities, such as Denmark Festival, community outreach and promoting LGBTQIA+ positive image
