BELOW are scans from the earliest copy of the Star Observer — then known as The Sydney Star — found in our archives.

It dates back to 1979, the year the newspaper was founded, and the front page story has a lot of relevance with many parts of the world celebrating pride festivals this month.

Enjoy!
