This free event (donations welcome) highlights the long history of queer rights in Sydney and showcases the heroes, heroines and homosexuals who paved the way for the rights of queer people in Australia.

From the very beginning, when local residents marched down Oxford Street to demand the legalisation of homosexuality, to the acceptance of diversity in the present day, this pop-up museum is a temporary event but will hopefully become a permanent fixture. Special memories line the walls, as memorabilia highlights what makes the gay community special.

You won’t want to miss this exclusive look into Sydney’s queer history!

When: 30 January onwards
Where: Oxford Street
Price: Free
