Out of the bars and into the streets: the gay liberation movement

2:15pm Fri 29 Mar

About this session

The relative acceptance of lesbian, gay and bisexual people in the advanced capitalist world has not come about without a fight. An important phase of this fight occurred in the 1960s and 70s with the advent of the Gay Liberation Movement. This session will look at how the movement emerged and developed in Australia, it’s politics and the legacy it has left.
