This week on Orange Ribbon Wednesday 27 January

Our guest this week is an indigenous TV and radio personality, journalist, and entertainer. Pascoe Braun will talk about how young his mother and father when they had him, being one of the stolen generation, and the white family who adopted him. He will also give us an insight into how the church treated the indigenous people and the heartache he and many of his community still feel today.

We will talk about the gay indigenous community in Adelaide and the events that take place there for them.  Pascoe has very strong views about the Australian and Aboriginal flag and what the government of today should  do with them.

He is very open about the sad start to his life, going on the streets as a teenager, but also lets you see how he turned his life around and changed everything for the better.
