Help commemorate the CAMP pioneers

The Pride movement in Australia started well before the first Mardi Gras in 1978.  In 1970 the national network known as CAMP (Campaign Against Moral Persecution) was founded in Sydney.  The momentum of CAMP quickly spread to other States, fuelling the first LGBTQI rights marches and political campaigns for changes to oppressive laws and systems. 

50 years later, some of the original members of CAMP NSW are compiling a book of newly commissioned professional portrait photographs of CAMP members across Australia, together with their personal stories of the impact CAMP had on their lives at the time.  Our book is called Pioneers of Protest and Change in recognition of the vital role played by CAMP activists in beginning a social movement that continues to this day.  In recognition that the early Pride movement was driven as much by woman as men, the book features equal representation of both.

Thanks to ACON and individual donations we have been able to make a great start to meeting production costs but additional funds are needed to match our ambitions for this unique project!.  We hope you agree that the contribution of the people who started the Pride movement in Australia is worth commemorating. All donations welcome and please share this fundraiser to your friends. Everyone who donates $100 or more will get a special mention in the book! Donate $150 or more for a special mention and a free signed copy of the book!

Thanks to you we reached our target of $4000 but on the strength of your support we have decided to increase the target to ensure the best quality product possible!
