Two councillors have criticised a City of Sydney proposal to sell the building that was once marked as an ideal location for a museum on LGBTI history or Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.
Gay and lesbian group told LGBTI plan for a small business hub not creative enough for Darlinghurst.
Shayne Mallard may well be the only Liberal politician to have married his same-sex partner, but the newly-minted NSW upper house MP says Canberra should focus on marriage equality while Macquarie St gets on with building the state.
City of Sydney votes to keep $50,000 Darlinghurst flagpole in place alongside future artwork.
Alex Greenwich, the former national director of Australian Marriage Equality, has been the Sydney state MP since July 2012. Here, he lists what he has achieved in that short time, as well as explaining why NSW’s LGBTI community would benefit from having an MP such as him who is not only openly-gay, but independent, too.
The City of Sydney is not only home to the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, but it’s also regarded as one of the most LGBTI-inclusive local government areas not just in Australia, but around the world. Lord Mayor Clover Moore writes.
This year, the symbol of the LGBTI community will fly from four times as many Sydney town halls as 2014.
In this week’s edition of Throwback Thursday, the Star Observer raided its archives and found a 1991 front page that somewhat coincides with Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore’s 10-year anniversary in local politics.
Leading museums have said they would be unwilling to store historical LGBTI artefacts without taking on permanent custodianship of them, throwing the latest plans by Sydney Council into doubt.
