Sia decided to move from Adelaide to London 20 years ago to follow her relationship with her boyfriend who later that year died. Her 2001 album 'Healing is Difficult' lyrically deals with his death: "I was pretty fucked up after he died. I couldn't really feel anything. I could intellectualise a lot of stuff; that I had purpose, that I was loved, but couldn't really feel anything". This resulted in six years of drug abuse. When asked about her sexuality in 2009, she said, "I've always dated boys and girls and anything in between. I don't care what gender you are, it's about people. ...I've always been... well, flexible is the word I would use." Sia has suffered from depression, addictions to pain killers and alcohol. In 2010, she cited panic attacks and considered retiring permanently from performing. During a 2014 interview she was asked if she was religious, to which she responded, "I believe in a High Power and it's called 'Whatever Dude' and he's a queer, surfing Santa that's a bit like my grandpa, so yes." This week has been a break-through in Australian history as the Australian people concluded 'yes' to same-sex marriage. Thanks to those who pushed the yes vote. This portrait is a tribute to people like Sia who have struggled with the isolation and fear of identity and inequality, who may now face a brighter, more equal future. Congratulations on the release of your new album 'Everyday is Christmas' and let's hope the Yes legislation passes before the new year. You are an inspiration Sia. Thank you for helping someone like me turn pain into purpose.

Hang ten queer surfing Santa <3

A year ago I entered an unforgettable country. Soon enough I'd like to go back as an older woman who's wiser, more aware (and who also owns better camera equipment). Walking through the streets of Varanasi was one of the most magical/surreal experiences to date. Here's to studying up as preparation for my next return
