Bold stories from a generation of outsiders
So much has changed in regards to coming out these days that it’s easy to forget that not so long ago the story was very different and a lot more difficult. David Hardy joined Elizabeth McCarthy and Louise Irving on Multi-Storied to talk about his new book Bold, a collection of 50 touching stories from the older LGBTI community. These stories have never been told publicly before and are told by people who are used to living life underneath the radar. David even talks of his own experience growing up gay in Townsville and reminds us that the struggles aren’t all about the 60’s and 70’s. There’s the bomb exploding at the Queensland AIDS clinic in the late 90’s and of course there are still parts of the world where discrimination is still rife.
