The Australian Lesbian and Gay Archives have partnered with Goodwill Wine to present you with an opportunity to purchase great value boutique wine featuring some wonderful images from the Archives’ collections – thereby supporting the preservation of the Australia’s LGBT history. Fifty per cent of the profit on each sale (a minimum of $20 per case) goes to the Archives.
Examples of the two Archives wine labels are shown here (you can also find them on the Goodwill Wine website).The featured labels are a 1978 ‘Homosexuals fight back’ screen-printed poster, and a photograph of a 1950s private camp party in Melbourne.
The wines available are from a constantly changing selection of some of the best boutique wines from around Australia. They are sold in either 12 or 6 bottle cases. If you select 2 x 6 bottle cases of different varieties, Goodwill Wine will package them up as a single 12 bottle case, so you save on freight. Goodwill Wine uses Australia Post’s Specialty Wine Service, ensuring care with your delivery and discounted rates.
If you are considering a separate financial donation to the Archives, or in conjunction with your membership renewal, remember that the Archives is a deductible gift recipient under Australian taxation law, so all donations of A$2 or more are tax-deductible. Donations can be made online via GiveNow, or as part of your membership or renewal.
Please consider supporting the Archives today, and help preserve Australia’s very queer history.
