This super interesting talk from the legends at the Australian Queer Archives (AQuA's) will take you through a photo tour of Melbourne's west throughout the 70s and 80s.

You will get to see snaps of queer life - from event photography to Gayskate, the iconic queer skating event held in Footscray and Sunshine in the early 1980s.

Feel free to bring a note-taking device or just yourself and come for a queer history lesson!
