Summary

A history of the development of homosexuality as an Australian subculture. Proceeding chronologically from the 1820s through to the vibrant alternative culture that exists in 2000, this book argues that the manner in which gay and lesbian identity has been constructed in Queensland is typical of Australia generally.
