Camp Nites: Sydney's Emerging Drag Scene in the '60s

While Sydney’s fairies and perverts had found refuge in the corners of certain bohemian coffee shops, toffs’ bars and sailor’s pubs for decades, the first venues to target Sydney’s camp men and women emerged in the 1960s.

This booklet unpacks the histories of such legendary venues as ‘The Jewel Box’, ‘Kandy’s Garden Of Eden’, ‘The Purple Onion’, ‘Chez Ivy’s’ and ‘Ivy’s Birdcage’.

Drawing on new interviews and never-before-seen photographs, it looks at their artistes, entrepreneurs and trashy-chic decor.

Camp as a Row of Tents: The Life and Times of Sydney's Camp Social Clubs

Sydney’s camp social clubs emerged in the ‘60s. These clubs overcame mainstream Sydney’s homophobia to carve their own spaces and create life-long friendships.

Camp as a Row of Tents begins with the flamboyant displays by drag queens at the Movie and Artists’ Balls in the ‘50s. Camp social clubs open to women and men formed through networks of friends from 1962 through to the early ‘70s. From the ‘70s on Sydney saw the setting up gender specific clubs as “camp” gave way to “gay” and “lesbian”.

The booklet is based on recent interviews of participants in these events and illustrated with images donated from their personal collections.
