Anwernekenhe: Us Mob

October 31, 1994 31 Oct - 4 Nov 1994 Hamilton Downs, Central Australia

The Central Australian AIDS Conference held in Alice Springs in 1990 gave birth to the idea of a national conference for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander queer men.  

ACOCA facilitated a national organising committee that together with people from Congress in Alice Springs, such as John Cross, brought Anwernekenhe into being at Hamilton Downs in 1994. The conference coordinator was ACOCA Coordinatgor Phil Walcott .

The Queers of the Desert website has a full account of this event, in the form of the first report penned by Phil Wallcott.
