Australia’s first organisation for homosexual rights, the Homosexual Law Reform Society of the ACT, was founded on 27 July 1969 at a public meeting in Canberra.

Join us in reflecting on the 50th anniversary with Graham Willett, author of a forthcoming history of LGBTIQ Canberra, in conversation with members of the founding committee, James Grieve, Thomas Mautner, Elizabeth Reid and Peter Sekuless. We will be welcomed by Andrew Barr MLA, the Chief Minister of the ACT.

This is a time to celebrate how far we’ve come as a city, but more importantly to look to the future and how we will continue to advance LGBTIQ equality and support our diverse community. There is so much to be proud of, but much more work to do.

This event is supported by the ACT Government Office for LGBTIQ Affairs.

Following the panel, enjoy drinks and canapes in the CMAG foyer, and view CMAG’s Activism exhibition.
