In the spirit of the celebration of the Mardi Gras Season, the Sisters of the Order of Perpetual Indulgence will be undertaking a Living History Walk: this year they will be focusing on the public anonymous sex venues, beats or Chapels of Lurv of the inner East and CBD.
The Sisters have been undertaking these walks annually for over 27 years – with each of their walks focusing the Gay, Lesbian and Queer lifestyles in separate geographical areas of Sydney.
The walk will be led by Activist, Historian and Author Robert French.
These are called Living History Walks, because Robert & the Sisters will be inviting and encouraging people to share their stories of what they did, where they went, who they met [but always on the best of taste, of course!].
Mind you, the Sisters themselves can sometimes show a little lack of taste … !
These Walks are an absolutely vital way to keep out own queer history alive, as queer history is often swept under the mats, and conveniently forgotten.
The Sisters encourage participants to wear sensible shoes, block-out and a hat.
The walk will proceed in all weathers, short of Armageddon.
