Join renowned historian Garry Wotherspoon to take a journey into Sydney's gay past.
From secretive camp venues to gay liberation meetings, nineteenth century 'Turkish baths' on Oxford Street to drag balls during the Great Depression, our city has a long and proud history of LGBTI social life and activism.
Garry Wotherspoon is the author of Gay Sydney: A History and took part in the original Mardi Gras march in 1978. This talk offers not only a history of gay Sydney, but the chance to hear the story of a path-breaking historian and pioneering activist for equality and LGBTI rights.
