A Darlinghurst park next to a famous gay men’s pick-up spot in the 1960s and down the road from Oxford Street will be the initial home of Sydney’s first queer museum. Green Park’s bandstand will host various displays documenting the persecution LGBTQIA+ people faced, as well as the response to the AIDS epidemic. Qtopia Chair David Polson said the exhibits would serve as a memorial for those who lost their lives to AIDS and to those who suffered from persecution dating right back to the start of the colony. The museum will be open to the public in February 2023 ahead of Sydney WorldPride, an international festival to coming to Australia to celebrate LGBTQIA+ pride.
