50 year anniversary of the Indigenous right to vote
Fifty years ago today, on November 30th 1963, was the first time all indigenous Australians were given the right to vote in both state and federal elections. It was part of a long series of gains by the Indigenous Australian rights movement that saw them win victories against the oppression of White Australia.
Following from this the 1967 referendum saw Indigenous Australians elevated to full citizens and no longer considered subjects under the Flora and Fauna Act. It wasn’t until the late 70s that the practice of removing indigenous children from their families officially ended. Barely a generation ago the overt discrimination of Indigenous Australians was still alive and well in a country that prides itself on a fair go.
While on our tour of Warner Brothers studios today we got to go see some of The Big Bang Theory taping! So cool! Not only was it cool to see a show I liked. But the whole set up was really interesting. They were taping shots for their Christmas episode. We only saw like three takes of one scene though

Just arrived at our next place of residence after burcon. It was an amazing weekend. Despite being exhausted most of the time following our 14hr flight from Australia, we definitely made the most of the trip. Highlights include the awesome people we met, and pretty much everything else too. It was definitely worth the cost of the trip and all the tickets!
Not sure when I’ll ever be able to go again though, so it’s a little bittersweet. But I got to meet most of the actors who were there. Meeting Misha, Richard, and Mark Shepard was definitely the best thing. I got my season 3 dvdof BSG signed by Mark!! AND TIM OMUNDSON WAS AT KARAOKE! That was brilliant. I mean I love spn, but Psych and BSG are my favourites
