Gay and Lesbian, Then and Now.

History, LGBTI Community

Gay and Lesbian, Then and Now.

Robert ReynoldsOnce viewed as criminals, sinners or sick, lesbians and gay men are increasingly accepted and the majority of Australians support same-sex marriage.

This rapid transformation in social attitudes has widened the space for lesbians and gays to live ordinary and visible lives in ways that were once barely imaginable.

Gay and Lesbian, Then and Now reveals the remarkable shifts from one generation to the next, told through the eyes and life stories of thirteen gay and lesbian Australians ranging in age from twenty to eighty.

Joining us to discuss this revolution is the book’s Co-author, Associate Professor Robert Reynolds from Macquarie University’s department of Modern History, Politics and International Relations (MHPIR). Gay and Lesbian, Then and Now
