Prejudice & Pride

To coincide with the 20 year anniversary of the decriminalisation of homosexuality in Queensland, Museum of Brisbane presents this respectful and dignified exploration of the lives of LGBT people in Brisbane over the past 150 years.


Prejudice & Pride goes behind the rainbow flag, offering reflections and recollections from Brisbane’s LGBT community. With an emphasis on recognition, the exhibition pays tribute to the lives within our community that have for too long been hidden.

By breaking down the myths and stereotypes associated with these communities, Prejudice & Pride reveals the real effect discrimination has on people’s lives and highlights the continued need for acceptance and understanding of LGBT people. The exhibition also celebrates unique LGBT culture – the importance of ‘reclaimed’ words and common language, identity and iconic symbols like the pink triangle and rainbow flag.

Visitors to Prejudice & Pride will experience Brisbane’s LGBT history, including personal stories of intolerance and struggle, and provides an opportunity to celebrate the important milestones and achievements of these diverse communities.

Prejudice & Pride
Venue: Museum of Brisbane

Dates:  04/06–17/10/10
