Secret Histories of Queer Melbourne has been reprinted for our 40th Anniversary.

Beyond the proud civic architecture, the boulevards, the parks and gardens, there is another Melbourne, less visible, less celebrated but no less marvelous. 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.
