Investigative Feature on Australia’s Lesbian Club Scene

For i-D, I investigated how, despite LGBT culture being more widely celebrated in Australia now than ever, lesbians still remain marginalised when the mainstream interacts with queer identity.

 

I conducted a bunch of research and interviewed Maria Frendo, unofficial matriarch of Melbourne's lesbian club scene who ran a hugely popular club called The Glasshouse; as well as Katie Pearson, AKA Whiskey Houston, who has run a number of successful club nights (and continues to do so); and Romy Hoffman, who ran Grouse Party before moving to LA.
