A new plan for a queer memorial and museum on Oxford Street is in development. Unlike other major cities such as Melbourne, whose Victorian Pride Centre opened in July this year, Sydney does not yet have a museum that celebrates the history, achievements, and lives of the city’s queer community. “This is a major omission that needs to be rectified,” asserted Qtopia Sydney, the group leading the charge to open a queer museum by WorldPride 2023. The framework for the project is already in place, with Hall and Wilcox providing pro bono legal services and PricewaterhouseCoopers working pro bono on a business plan and feasibility study. The Victorian Pride Centre has given access to its research and its administrative structure while the Sydney Jewish Museum has shared details of its volunteer program, which Qtopia has adopted.
