Queers of the Desert: Anwernekenhe: Us Mob

“This historic conference was held at Hamilton Downs, 75km north-west of Alice Springs in Australia’s Northern Territory from Sunday 31st October to Friday 4th November, 1994. It is believed to be the first forum of its kind to be held anywhere in the world. A total of 66 Aboriginal and Islander gay men and transgenders nationally attended to be part of this initiative. The conference represented a long term ambition by a group of particularly dedicated young Aboriginal men who believed strongly enough in a dream to be able to bring it to fruition.”
