Midsumma Event: The Public Life of Us @ PMI Victorian History Library Inc.

Queer people making an exhibition of ourselves

“There have always been queer people in Australia. At least as far back as the First Fleet, and perhaps beyond. But with the state, the church, professional and public opinion mobilised against us, it was always safer to keep out of sight. We certainly managed to meet each other, to hook up and even to gather and socialise but it was risky and relied on discretion and a bit of luck. All that started to change when lesbians and gay men started to come out – to create organisations and draw attention to ourselves and our demands.”

Back from the Brink: The Chequered History of the Victorian Railway History Library @ PMI Victorian History Library
Feb 22 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Back from the Brink: The Chequered History of the Victorian Railway History Library @ PMI Victorian History Library

Donald, President of the Library, will talk about the bleak future The Victorian Railway History Library (then ARHS (Vic) Library) faced when it was expelled from rooms at the Windsor Railway Station following Victorian Railways privatisation. However, many moves later the library now has a happy home at the Prahran Mechanics Institute. This talk examines that fraught period and also gives an overview of the collection and some of the gems it contains.

Please provide a gold coin donation for entry.
