Jenny Kee and Me
On the weekend I finally got around to watching the brilliant television program “Friends Of Dorothy” by William Yang. William is a really important Australian photographer whose work documents, in particular, Sydney’s gay and lesbian scene in the last forty years.

I scarcely remembered it until I saw the photograph ealier.… Read the rest “Where Was I In 1988?”
