Fabulous Fitzroy on Foot
Queer history revealed
Once the smallest suburb in Australia, Fitzroy has always packed in a lot of queer history. In the 1970s and after it was the home of the Women’s Culture Palace and gay liberation’s headquarters, a gay mayor and St Mark’s gay-welcoming church. But long before that there were colourful characters galore: Marion-Bill Edwards, the notorious man-woman; John Wilson fleeing in a frock; Gordon Lawrence and his ‘articles of a suspicious nature ... used for a certain purpose’. The gang from the Archives will be leading you astray to all this and more.
