In 2018 ALGA is 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 was at various events at Midsumma 2018 beginning with our stall at Carnival on Sunday 14th January at Alexandria Gardens, Melbourne.
Our 40th so far can be viewed in this gallery!
Some of our events this year have included:
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
