I am in Victoria. But the community of lesbians is national. We have been having national gatherings since 1989.
We have been challenged by trans in court in Victoria and South Australia. And we have had challenges that have not gone as far as court in NSW, NT and WA.
We had to start going 'underground' ie having a 'private party' and therefore not advertising publicly, in 2002 (would have to check to make sure that date is correct.)
The gatherings are still happening but there is a great deal of paranoia about being 'found out' ! As well as a great deal of anger.
