The gay liberation movement gained traction in the early 1970s, heralding a golden age of gay that was to last until the HIV/AIDS crisis in the 1980s. It gave rise to a gay aesthetic that challenged the heterosexual norm. This exhibition celebrates Sydney gay artists who contributed to this aesthetic, including radical drag troupe, Sylvia and the Synthetics; parade legends, David McDiarmid and Peter Tully; rock legend, Wendy Saddington; and undisputed queen of cabaret, Fifi L’Amour.
