Description

In this, the latest in the Gay and Lesbian Perspectives series, researchers explore the rich history of queer Australasia, uncovering photographic records of small-town male intimacy, cases of police entrapment, the mysterious suicide pact of Charles Marks and Edward Feeny, ASIO attempts to grapple with persons with serious character defects, and previously unexamined political and cultural expressions of gay/lesbian/queer activism over the last four decades. The result is an original and important contribution to understanding a history that is all too often shrouded in secrecy.
