Recognising LGBTI Soldiers

Posted on: Thu 27 Apr 2017

Open homosexuality was banned from the military until 1992, forcing many servicepeople to hide a massive part of their identity.

Associate Professor Shirleene Robinson, Vice Chancellor’s Innovation Fellow in the Discipline of Modern History at Macquarie University, joined Jennie Lenman to enlighten us about this shame filled part of military history.

If you identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or intersex and served in the Australian military you can help with the Australian LGBTI Military History Project here.
