We are sad to note the death recently of Margaret Taylor, aged 81. Margaret will be remembered for her work in many gay, lesbian and feminist organisations from the early 1980s onwards.

As an organiser in groups for older lesbians (Golden Oldies, Evergreens), a founding member of Matrix Guild (in which she and partner Sue organised several fundraising Satin and Silk balls), and as a member of the Performing Older Women’s Circus Showband, Margaret’s trademark energy and good humour were much valued.

In later life she moved to country Victoria, where Margaret’s and Sue’s contributions to community life were honoured in 2009 with life membership of Country Awareness Network.
