The Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras (1978) was formed by the Gay Solidarity Group to protest against homophobia, demanding civil rights for the LGBT community and commemorating the Stonewall riot. The resulting police violence and arrests created a defining night in not only Sydney’s LGBT community, but Australia’s cultural heritage. Read more about the uprising.
This work was included in Jeremy Novy's "The First Pride was a Riot" pop-up exhibition at Voss Gallery (June 23 - July 4, 2020). SF Weekly reviewed the show—read the article and view install images of the exhibition!
