Event description
Should Oxford Street be preserved as a historic, cultural, commercial and tourist precinct for the LGBTQI community?

About this event

Oxford Street is one of the world’s most iconic queer strips. It sits in the middle of the largest concentration of LBGTQI people in Australia. After years of neglect the street is in desperate need of a makeover. Plans are afoot to redevelop Oxford Street. What happens on our street is important to us as a community and we need to speak about it. To mark the Star Observer’s 42nd anniversary we are hosting a panel discussion on the future of Oxford Street. Join a community forum with:

• Clover Moore, City of Sydney Lord Mayor

• Alex Greenwich MP; Independent Member for Sydney in New South Wales

• Kate Wickett, CEO of Sydney WorldPride 2023

• David Polson Chair of the steering committee for “Sydney Queer Space”

• Andrew Gorman-Murray, Professor of Geography at Western Sydney University

• Lawrence Gibbons, Publisher of the Star Observer

MODERATOR: Mon Schafter, Walkley Award winning journalist and reporter for 7:30 and ABCQueer

***If Sydney remains in lockdown on 1 August, this forum will be live streamed.

A link will be sent to everyone who has registered.

Attendees will be invited to submit a written question in advance of the live streamed event.
