175 Oxford Street, Sydney
This panel discussion will explore aspects of a difficult history. Violence and discrimination have often factored in the relationship between police and the LGBTIQ community in Sydney. We will examine the history of that relationship and contemplate the continuing ramifications of this troubled past.
Chaired by Dr Scott McKinnon, vice-president of Sydney's Pride History Group, the panel will include:
Fiona McGregor, historian and author
Mark Gillespie, anthropologist and 78er
Serkan Ozturk, researcher and filmmaker
Lauren Foy, Co-convenor, Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby
This is a free event. All welcome.

Welcome to the Pride History Group
We are a community history group which collects information about Sydney's LGBTIQ past.
Although members of the GLBTIQ community have made rich contributions to Sydney life, many of these contributions have been forgotten or erased from the broader historical record. We aim to correct these omissions by unearthing, recording and preserving material that relates to LGBTIQ people in Sydney's past.
We also like to engage the broader community with the material we collect. Some of the ways we have done this include books and community talks.
We are a voluntary organisation with members who meet monthly (become a Member), and we are always keen to hear from people who would like to be involved and help us to record and preserve Sydney's LGBTIQ histories, please contact us.
