Finish time TBC

Silver Sessions is back in 2023! Silver Sessions is a partnership between the City of Sydney and ACON, hosting events for LGBTQ+ women aged 55+. 

This event is intergenerational, welcoming everyone aged 18+, to share, listen and learn about queer herstories from those who paved the way for LGBTQ+ women in Sydney. This year we are partnering with Sad Dyke Sundays at the Bearded Tit to host a panel discussion about queer women’s spaces and sexual cultures from the 1970s-90s!


C.Moore Hardy is a queer photographer with 3 decades of work documenting women’s, queer, activist, and political scene in this city particularly. Her work was in 4 exhibitions during Sydney World Pride. It can be viewed in the City of Sydney archives online and in person at the Australian Queer Archives in Melbourne.

Lisa Salmon (she/they) launched Australia’s first lesbian sex-positive zine, Wicked Women with her partner Jasper Laybutt in 1988. The zine evolved into a magazine that sparked a revolution in lesbian circles of inner city Sydney and Melbourne with parties and events including the infamous Ms Wicked competition. Lisa has been writing a memoir and hosts events that revisit this era of third wave of feminism when the pursuit of pleasure was a powerful political protest. Current discussions about gender, feminism, identity, and queer representation inform her work.

Lesley Hudson is one of the founding members of the Vixens which started in 1989 – 1990, and later became known as the Dykes on Bikes Sydney.

Bookings recommended.

Silver Sessions aims to provide accessible events to the community. Please contact Lee Wang with any access requirements. The Bearded Tit is an accessible venue.
