Sydney’s new LGBTQI museum Qtopia has announced its very first exhibition – a restaging of Ward 17 South, Australia’s very first dedicated HIV/AIDS unit that was located at St Vincent’s hospital. On Wednesday, Qtopia signed a lease with the City of Sydney for a temporary venue at the Bandstand in Green Park, Darlinghurst. For Sydney WorldPride, from February 17 – March 5, 2023, Qtopia will have two exhibition spaces – Green Park Bandstand and the National Art School, according to CEO Greg Fisher. The Ward 17 installation will be set up at the National Art School premises. David Polson, Chairman of Qtopia Sydney, said Ward 17 holds a special place in Sydney’s LGBTQI history.
