DaylesforD Stories - Community Pride

Welcome to our Daylesford story-collecting hub! We are exploring perspectives on why it is that Daylesford has become such a special place for LGBTIQ communities. As part of this project we are making a short film and creating a page on the Culture Victoria website. So, we want to hear your stories and reflections of Daylesford. You may share current experiences or past recollections. You might like to tell us about why you first came to Daylesford, or why it is that you keep coming back. Maybe you grew up there or live there now. 

You can choose to fill in the form (below) or talk us through your memories in a sound recording. Click here to be taken to our audioBoom channel where you can record your story. With your permission your Daylesford story, whether written or spoken, will become part of the collection of the Australian Lesbian and Gay Archives. We are really looking forward to hearing your Daylesford story.
