We are a community history group which collects information about Sydney's LGBTIQ past.
Although members of the LGBTIQ community have made rich contributions to Sydney life, many of these contributions have been forgotten or erased from the broader historical record. We aim to correct these omissions by unearthing, recording and preserving material that relates to LGBTIQ people in Sydney's past.
We also like to engage the broader community with the material we collect. Some of the ways we have done this include books and community talks.
We are a voluntary organisation, with members who meet monthly, and we are always keen to hear from people who would like to be involved and help us to record and preserve Sydney's LGBTIQ histories, please contact us.
The theme of the Queer Histories Symposium, a joint initiative of the Australian Lesbian and Gay Archives with the Darwin Outgames Human Rights Forum, is Diversity in Pride.
