ANZAC Day: Wartime lesbians remembered

Tue 22 Apr 2008 In: New Zealand Daily News View at Wayback View at NDHA

New Zealand's lesbians in the forces and lesbian victims of war will be remembered this ANZAC Day at Auckland's Charlotte Museum. Dr Miriam Saphira will present an afternoon of lesbian stories from wartime, and share her childhood memories of the war and its effects. The world-first lesbian museum will open at 2:30pm on ANZAC Day - this Friday 25 April - for the event, where afternoon tea will be served. The museum also plans to launch its Bronwen Dean Oral Herstory listening post project next month, continuing its commitment to collecting, preserving and sharing stories of local lesbian culture.
