Marriage Equality is the most recent issue to galvanise the LGBTIQ and broader communities into action. But ME is part of a much longer history, with victories on the road to equality won through the persistence of our activists and the resilience of our community.

Out in the Streets is a panel discussion to analyse Sydney's vibrant history of LGBTIQ activism.

Marriage Equality is the most recent issue to galvanise the LGBTIQ and broader communities into action. But ME is part of a much longer history, with victories on the road to equality won through the persistence of our activists and the resilience of our community.

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the first Sydney Mardi Gras, but also the approaching 50th anniversary of pioneering Gay Lib organisation C.A.M.P. (the 'Campaign Against Moral Persecution'), the UTS Australian Centre for Public History teams with the City of Sydney and Sydney’s Pride History Group to present this important public event.

Join us up at Kings Cross, in a part of Sydney that is full of significance for LGBTIQ histories.

This is a free community event but pre-registration is required. 6.00pm for 6.30 start.
