Beyond the proud civic architecture, the boulevards, the parks and gardens, there is another Melbourne, less visible, less celebrated but no less marvellous. From the earliest days, men who loved men, and women who loved women – sodomites and spinsters, camps and gays and lesbians, queers of all kinds – have made the city their own, giving it a vibrant history. Secret Histories of Queer Melbourne reveals and celebrates some of their stories.

Publication of Secret Histories of Queer Melbourne was supported by the City of Melbourne.

Secret Histories of Queer Melbourne is now sold out.
