They publicly challenged injustice and discrimination and demanded the right to be treated equally, regardless of race, class, gender or sexuality. This exhibition told the story of a period in Brisbane that began in the 1960s and continued until the 1980s, when people took to the streets and were confronted by the full force of a conservative State Government.
