Episode 32: The Village

25th Apr 2018

In this extra long episode of CottonmouthMCR we talk to Paul Martin of the LGBT Foundation, John Hamilton from BarPop and Tony Cooper from OnBar about the history of the Village, what’s happening now and the likely future.

We discuss drag shows, memories of FooFoo Lamar, the original Section 28 march and get into whether there’s any need for a ‘gay’ Village in the 21st century. There’s also more than a little bit of gossip.
