Bendigo Writers Festival

Event Date:

Author / Presenters: 
Benjamin Law, Abe Watson

Much has changed in the past 50 years for those who grew up gay. Benjamin Law has gathered memories written by those who are veterans of the fight for rights, and young people whose wit and wisdom is set free in this astonishing collection. Ben talks with Abe Watson about the book's genesis, about what he has discovered since his own memoir was published almost a decade ago, and what these stories tells us about the state of gay rights in our country.
