04/23/2024

Not-for-profit Qtopia has applied to permanently transform a former police station into the Sydney Centre for Queer History and Culture. Along with Create NSW—the NSW Government’s arts and culture driver—Qtopia has submitted plans to permanently dedicate the building at 301 Forbes Street as a celebration of queer culture. The building is of particular significance to the LGBTQIA+ community because it is the former Darlinghurst Police Station where the original 1978 Mardi Gras protesters were detained.
