The Reginas and 44 years after Mardi Gras 1978

Sunday, 3 July 2022 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

After some chat and music, including a reminder to donate to our radiothon, we hear from The Reginas, doing a show 'Queering the Pitch Pt. 2: Storytime with The Reginas' next weekend at the Harehole.

Shout outs to: Minus 18 Queer Formal, Beers for Queers and Aurelia St Clair. We comment on the 44th anniversary of the Sydney gay solidarity Mardi Gras in 1978, which was brutually attacked by police (78ers website and zine 'It Was Riot!', and Star Observer article). Also mentioned: queers killed in Oslo, Blockade Australia raid (see Thursday Breakfast for an interview), and Dani Laidley and the Police Association (article).
