History Walk

The Golden Mile & Sex On Premises

Tuesday 26th February 2008

Approximately 75 community members and visitors assembled at the designated point in Paddington to set out on an intriguing, entertaining, accurate and extensive visitation with the Sydney House of the Order of Perpetual Indulgence. The procession travelled west along the Golden Mile of Oxford Street to Taylor Square, so keen to hear more of the history of our community the group continued to Oxford Square. Famous and infamous venues and characters of yesterday and today were recalled enroute. Several of the gathered faithful were, and indeed still are very much part of the gay community of Sydney and also shared their recollections of the history of, not to mention their experiences on, the Golden Mile.
