Stonewall Week

June 22, 1985 June 22 - 29

Stonewall Week was celebrated in Darwin for the first time. A committee of gay men, initiated by Sim Lee included Dino Hodge, Kevin (John Malone’s partner), Brad Weis, Ian Laughlan, John(Norman) Turner and John Goodall. This inaugrural Darwin Stonewall  festival aimed to produce two events but finally produced six - including a film night, a fundraising dinner, a National Blue Jeans  Awareness Day and a ‘Splash of Pink’ Bar Night. The Bar night was sponsored by the Darwin Gay Society.
