Back in 1979...

Kura and I were browsing through papers in the Helpline room a week ago and came across WGWG’s 25th birthday folder. Did you know that although we were formally established as an incorporated society in 1981, 1979 was our official start date? Incredibly that was less than one year after openly gay Supervisor Harvey Milk was shot and killed in San Francisco.

At the age of 31 we’re doing pretty well for a volunteer organisation. Congratulations to all the people who took on roles at the August AGM. Make sure you bring energy and put new ideas forward to help keep WGWG alive for many years to come. Stu
