An anthology of some of the papers from the first two conferences on Australia’s Homosexual Histories.
The articles in this special issue of the La Trobe Journal cover both historical and contemporary subjects, ranging from the relationship between the two female pastoralists, Anne Drysdale and Caroline Newcomb, to an account of how museums and libraries are now dealing with LGBT related material.
An encyclopedic reference to authors, titles and subjects, with easy-to-use A-Z entries.
This book is the only overall history of Australia’s hallmark gay and lesbian event. It traces the evolution of Mardi Gras from 1978 to 1995, and is a ‘warts and all’ account of the controversies that have beset organizers.
‘…a wonderfully comprehensive history of the Australian gay and lesbian movement, which deserves to be read widely. Graham Willett is to be commended for bringing to life the history of a significant social movement, which has radically changed the way we in Australia understand sexuality and its role in social life’: Dennis Altman
