About Us

Welcome to our website. This is the first project to investigate the history of Australian lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) military service since 1945. It will reveal the untold experiences of LGBTI personnel, many of whom had to hide their sexuality or gender identity. It will also shed light on the way the Australian armed forces have grappled with changing social attitudes towards LGBTI people from the end of the Second World War until the present.
