Abstract

More than 50 older LGBTI people share their stories and images - of first love and family, of struggle and defiance and resistance and pride. They include prominent activists including Bob Brown, Sally Goldner and the Hon. Michael Kirby. Many of the stories are by ordinary and extraordinary people who may be Indigenous, born overseas, or live in cities or small towns across Australia, New Zealand, UK, US and Ireland.

David Hardy presents diverse stories to unsilence lives and put them in print. They add to the history of the LGBTI movement by adding in the power of the personal; life stories that make their mark. ‘I hope this book helps people understand who LGBTI people are and who we are not,‘ says David. ‘We are not invisible. This collection of stories celebrates the myriad ways we identify as LGBTI people. I hope these stories will stir and agitate, comfort and caress, and make you mad and cry and laugh out loud.’
