Photographs

Below is a selected collection of our photography holdings. For a complete listing please see our catalogue or if you are after something in particular, please contact us.

All the photographs shown were donated by both organisational and individual donors. Photographs taken by queer organisation, mainly depicting pageants and shows, offered a glimpse to the lively and glamorous scenes in the 80s and 90s. Meanwhile, images taken by community members offered a close-up and intimate snapshots of queer life in the past.
