"I was thinking this will be a momentous occasion, regardless of which way it goes. I liked the idea that I was going to be there at the time of the announcement. That night I went with my partner to the local Gay Hotel and remember feeling the excitement in the crowd. I recall seeing a local gay man who'd been sacked by a "Christian" school because students had discovered he's gay. I don't know him, just saw him in the crowd. It was good to be together in the excitement and supporting each other."

Acknowledgement of Country


QLife acknowledges the Traditional Owners of country throughout Australia, their diversity, histories and knowledge and their continuing connection to lands, waters and communities. We pay our respects to all Australian Indigenous peoples and their cultures, and to Elders of past, present and future generations.

Acknowledgement of our Elders


We pay our respects to those amongst the lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and intersex communities who have worked to support the improved health and wellbeing of their peers, children, families, friends, and country. We honour the elders in the diverse communities of which we are a part and we celebrate the extraordinary diversity of people's bodies, genders, sexualities, and relationships that they represent.
