2019 will mark the 30th annual Living History Walk hosted by the Sisters of the Order of Perpetual Indulgence. Again the Sisters are proud to be joined by renowned Activist, Historian and Author Robert French who will provide commentary and insight into the gay history of the Newtown area. 

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 in the best of taste, of course!]. 
Mind you, the Sisters can sometimes show a little lack of taste themselves… !

These Walks are an absolutely vital way to keep our own queer history alive, as queer history is often swept under the mats, and conveniently forgotten.

Our perambulation this year will conclude at Victoria Park, Camperdown where you will be able to enjoy all the fun of the fair, Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Fair Day that is! 

The Sisters encourage participants to wear sensible shoes, block-out and a hat. The walk will proceed in all weathers, short of Armageddon.
