    Heritage Victoria and the Australian Queer Archives (AQuA), formerly the Australian Lesbian and Gay Archives (ALGA), are pleased to announce the launch of the report A History of LGBTIQ+ Victoria in 100 Places and Objects on Monday 1 March 2021, 6:30-7:30pm. This launch date coincides with the 40th anniversary of the decriminalisation of homosexual acts in Victoria in 1981.

    HV AQUA Launch BannerA History of LGBTIQ+ Victoria was commissioned by Heritage Victoria and published by the Australian Queer Archives (AQuA). It identifies 100 objects, places and collections of significance to Victoria’s LGBTIQ+ communities, bringing to life the experiences of queer and gender diverse people from the 1830s onwards across Melbourne and regional Victoria.

    The launch will be conducted via a Zoom Webinar and you will need to register in advance. Reservation details are available to the left under 'Book Now'. At the launch, contributing authors will showcase the report and there will be a reflection on the significance of the 40th anniversary of Victoria’s decriminalisation of homosexuality.

    Heritage Victoria would like to thank the over 150 people who made a submission to the project during the community consultation process.
