LInc Recipient Spotlight – Australian Lesbian Museum 

LInc Spotlight

For grant round two of 2019 Lesbians Incorporated awarded L Media Ltd a grant to produce an archive project “Australian Lesbian Museum”. They are currently in the planning stages for this historic project, which is to inform the next generation of their activism, lifestyle and culture. 

Their reach into the history of Australian Lesbians demands the commitment to preserve it hence they are investing in establishing the Australian Lesbian Museum. The project will roll out to publish a virtual museum and if demand and financial support is available – we hope to create a travelling museum across Australia.

The aim is to apply for the community heritage grant to establish a secure publishing platform that will highlight lesbian cultural significance such as the Lesbian Space Project, The Drag King Culture, Lesbian families and much more. 

L Media Ltd  have one of the most comprehensive historic library of lesbian life and culture in Australia. (Digital and Print) . They celebrated 30 years in publishing in December 2019.
