Young, gay and proud
Melbourne Gay Teachers and Students Group
Melbourne: Gay Teachers’ and Students’ Group, 1978
In 1978, an autonomous collective of the Melbourne Gay Teachers and Students Group published this 60 page booklet aimed at gay and lesbian youth, the first time a publication was produced to meet their needs. The book received considerable media attention in Victoria, most of it negative, with evangelical Christian churches and organisations campaigning against it, and Member of Parliament, Jeff Kennett, commenting that he saw it as proselytising.
