I’m in a position to already have a number of reliable contact points for research on early GLBTI history in Tasmania.
This will include digitally recording oral and written interviews by elderly residents, and gathering referrals to further surviving members of the community.
I do have endorsement from leading researchers and archivists willing to contribute material to this Gay Tas History Project.
My costs will include purchase and hire of digital recording equipment, manuals, transport and freight within Tasmania and eventually interstate.
I welcome enquiries and referrals to this very detailed new project. It will bring a greater in-depth understanding (for historic archiving) of a now far more widely-known and accepted community.
