Welcome to G-H, full of news, information on gay campaigning topics, hints and tips, and gay history. The items on gay history are intended to be a readable introduction to our history which will provide interested readers with ideas for further research and reading.

“History”, because it is often written after the event, often contains a mixture of facts, opinions, memories (which may or may not be accurate) and interpretations. We try to concentrate on what exactly happened.

  1. Do you post short stories (1000-3000 words) about GLBITQ topics? I am 60 now and presently studying writing at an Australian university and use my memories of the past 40 years to write about growing-up gay in Regional Australia. Not always easy, especially the AIDS years of the 1990’s and I feel it would be a shame for this ‘lost’ history not to be recorded somewhere. I saw the demolition of so many good lives, hopes, and dreams because there is a life outside of the large cities and I feel regional gays just disappear. Your comments appreciated.
    Kindest Regards,


  2. Hello Robert, while most of the posts on the blog are fairly short, I do have some more lengthy articles. You might like to look at https://gayhistory.wordpress.com/2011/08/23/dream-city-fire/ for an example of an article that features first person accounts. I agree with your comments about the need to document our history and especially those stories from people who did not necessarily live in big cities. You may find an American book, “A passion to preserve” is of interest to you as it documents the lives of gay men in the 40s and 50s from a wide variety of backgrounds. Best wishes, Paul
