Celebrate the past as we chat all things love, intimacy and sex with Nick Henderson from the Australian Lesbian and Gay Archives. Here we’ll explore some of their portraits and how archives are vital for our collective story.

Presented as part of the Canberra’s annual SpringOUT Pride Festival (31 October-29 November 2020) which celebrates Australia’s most LGBTIQ-friendly city and its LGBTIQ community in all its fabulous diversity.
