In 2018 ALGA will be celebrating 40 years of collecting our Australian LGBTIQ histories. It’s a fabulous achievement for a small, predominantly volunteer run, community archives who continue to animate our shared histories through exhibitions, publications, history walks, conferences, collaborations and of course research access.
Our first outing at 40 will be at various events at Midsumma 2018 beginning with our stall at Carnival on Sunday 14th January at Alexandria Gardens, Melbourne – please come along and say Hi! and become a member! – we will also have a new reprint of the fantastic publication Secret Histories available for sale.
Other events at Midsumma 2018 include:
Queer History Walk on Sunday 21st January 2018
WE ARE HERE – contemporary artists explore their queer cultural heritage – exhibition at State Library Victoria, 19 January – 1 April, 2018
Serving in Silence? Australian LGBTI service since WWII – exhibition at City Library, Melbourne, 11 January – 3 February, 2018
