Reflections Project

2016 05 10 Reflections2

The DEFGLIS “Reflections” project and research project “Serving in Silence? LGBTI Military Service in Australia since 1945” aims to produce the first overview history of Australian LGBTI military service since World War II.

We are interested in the policies, practices and lived experiences of LGBTI personnel and how they have changed over time.

The research team is led by Dr Noah Riseman of Australian Catholic University, Dr Shirleene Robinson of Macquarie University and Dr Graham Willett of the University of Melbourne and President of the Australian Lesbian and Gay Archives.

We all bring different backgrounds researching aspects of Defence and LGBTI history.

If you are LGBTI and served after 1945, or if you have first-hand experience about LGBTI military service in the Australian Defence Force after 1945, we are very interested in hearing from you.
