The Canterbury-Bankstown branch of Come Out Australia wants to hear about your experiences, past and present, within the Canterbury Local Government Area.
Come Out Australia’s Alex Day wants to interview GLBTI people who have lived, worked or been associated with the suburbs of Ashbury, Belfield, Belmore, Beverly Hills, Campsie, Canterbury, Clempton Park, Croydon Park, Earlwood, Hurlstone Park, Kingsgrove, Lakemba, Narwee, Punchbowl, Riverwood, Roselands or Wiley Park.
Day wants to produce a booklet about the GLBTI experience in the area and has sought funding from Canterbury Council for the project.
“A lot of people in suburbia do think they are the only gay in the village and we want to have a resource there so they know that they’re not alone,” Day said.
“We want to talk to people about what its like being GLBTI in the area and what their experiences have been — whether good, bad or indifferent.
“We want a booklet which can be available from local libraries and community centres, and we’ll put it on our website with links to the printed articles and some of the actual interviews, either video or audio.”
Day is happy to record stories anonymously or using a pseudonym, if people are concerned about being identified.
