"Sydney is world renowned for its gay and lesbian scene, and this tour is the perfect way to get straight to the heart of it. A friendly guide will take you on a journey through the city’s LGBTQ+ history, filling you in on stories of prominent and memorable figures, such as the gay governor whose behaviour scandalised the British Empire and the lesbian criminal who was known as the ‘most violent woman in Sydney', and stole the girlfriends of male gangsters. You’ll hear how the biggest party in town, the annual Mardi Gras, was born and be taken to some of the hottest spots in town including Oxford Street, the centre of LGBTQ+ Sydney. The climax of the tour is a drink in a gay pub and the chance to meet some locals."
