Last year, Tim compiled a timeline of the participation of the First People’s gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, sistergirl, brotherboy, intersex and queer community at Mardi Gras. Stretching back to the 80s, Tim’s work hasshined a light on the overlooked work done by First Australians for the LGBT community.
Tim’s exhibition opens on Feb 21 in Redfern, NSW.
We spoke about the importance of creating space for First Australian participation in the LGBTI community, and why Koori Gras is just the beginning.
