Fabulously fierce! Experience LGBTQIA+ Sydney, from fighting for our lives, to defiantly queer Mardi Gras.

Drawing from the City of Sydney’s archives, Jacqui North curates this exhibition. Experience life as seen through the lens of C. Moore Hardy and other social documentary and queer photographers.

Celebrating 45 years of community-led social change, Liberate! provides insight into significant social issues and events. Witness the creation of queer organisations and world-leading HIV education campaigns; the thirteen-year struggle for marriage equality and the historic and monumental win.

C. Moore Hardy writes, “We fought for human rights whilst being abused on the streets. As Australians, we have many rights, although we need to stay vigilant.” Featuring lesbian, First Nations, trans and gender-diverse communities, the photographs in this exhibition reveal “the vibrancy, diversity, subversiveness and fabulousness of queer life and community” says C. Moore Hardy.

Come and share dance floor memories and chant with us at all our rallies; and support today’s drive for freedom of gender expression against attempts to discriminate and divide.

“Wonderful memories. We were so lucky, I made many of the closest friends of my life.” – Rob Patmore, Mardi Gras President, 1995

“‘Stop police attacks on gay, women and blacks’ was a very regular chant… It was mass defiance it was exhilarating…but we were marching into danger.” – Dianne Minnis, lesbian 1978er, First Mardi Gras

On Sabato 18 Febbraio meet the artists, activists, and creatives at a panel discussion. Share the history-making moments in the city and streets where it all took place.

Riconoscimento del paese

Il Sydney WorldPride si svolgerà nelle terre dei Gadigal, Cammeraygal, Bidjigal, Darug, Dharawal che sono i Custodi Tradizionali del Bacino di Sydney.

Portiamo il nostro rispetto ai loro anziani passati e presenti. Sempre è stata e sempre sarà la terra degli aborigeni.

Gli aborigeni e gli abitanti delle isole dello Stretto di Torres provengono da molti clan e comunità diverse in tutta l'Australia e nel 2023 si riuniranno come uno solo, per celebrare con la nostra comunità globale LGBTQIA+.
