The Famous ALGA Queer History Walk: 40th Anniversary Edition
Explore queer history through the streets of Melbourne!
Duration: 3 hours
In 2018 ALGA turns forty! And to celebrate four decades of collecting, preserving and celebrating Australian LGBTQIA+ histories, the Archives is inviting you to come and join us in a special, one-off edition of ALGA'S famous queer history walk.
Join us as we make our way around Melbourne to explore stories from our very queer past. Same-sex marriage in the church – in the nineteenth century! Camp cafes from the early twentieth century! Gay Lib demos in the 1970s! Come along for a tour of the CBD as we get queer history out of the archives and take it to the streets.
