Intimacy, Violence and Activism: Gay and Lesbian Perspectives on Australasian History and Society

In Intimacy, Violence and Activism (Monash University Press), the latest in the Gay and Lesbian Perspectives series, the contributors to this collection explore the rich history of queer Australasia, uncovering photographic records of small-town male intimacy, cases of police entrapment, the mysterious suicide pact of Charles Marks and Edward Feeny, ASIO attempts to grapple with ‘persons with serious character defects’, and previously unexamined political and cultural expressions of gay/lesbian/queer activism over the last four decades. Edited by Yorick Smaal and Graham Willett.
