Heritage Victoria, in partnership with the Australian Lesbian and Gay Archives (ALGA), is undertaking a study of LGBTIQ heritage – places, objects and collections – across the state. The study, A History of LGBTIQ Victoria in 100 Places and Objects, aims to reflect the experiences of all sections of the LGBTIQ community and historical themes. The study will include places of gathering, punishment, ‘treatment’, political activism, social life and recreation, health, from different eras and regions of Victoria. Heritage Victoria are currently seeking community contributions to help inform the study that will be released in mid-2020.
