The Australian Lesbian and Gay Archives is pleased to announce that registration for our 2019 History Conference, "Before Mardi Gras: Gay + in the 1970s" is now open.
The conference will be held at the Australian National University, Canberra, on Friday 15 & Saturday 16 November, with the welcome reception and book launch on Thursday 14.
This year’s conference takes place shortly after the 50th anniversary of the formation of the Homosexual Law Reform Society of the ACT, the first organisation to campaign for homosexual rights in Australia. The coming year also sees the anniversaries of the Daughters of Bilitis/Australasian Lesbian Movement (Melbourne, January 1970) and the Campaign Against Moral Persecution (Sydney, mid-1970).
Registration is $100 for waged/non-members, and $60 for concession holders/ALGA members. Register at: https://www.registernow.com.au/secure/Register.aspx?E=36345
