Summary

Some of the very first Australians were gay and lesbian: they arrived on convict ships or as free settlers and forged their own colourful and intriguing history. At times shunned from society, they fought to be treated as equals. From mollies to queers, gays and lesbians have contributed to Australian history in a most unique way. Age 14+.
