Event description

Description

Marriage Equality is the most recent issue to galvanise the gay and lesbian 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 activists and the resilience of community.

Out in the Streets is a panel discussion to analyse this vibrant history of Sydney's gay and lesbian activism.

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the first Sydney Mardi Gras, as well as 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, a part of Sydney full of significance for LGBTIQ histories.

This is a free community event but pre-registration is required.
