Photography: Coming Of Age

Peter and Bon, from the 1970s ABC documentary Chequerboard, the first male couple to kiss on TV.

An activist, a minister, an actor, a nurse, a lecturer, an artist ... Richard Hedger has captured 16 portraits of LGBTI ‘elders’ – significant members of Australia’s gay community who are over the age of 65. Part of Sydney’s Mardi Gras celebrations, these intimate images show a generation that has witnessed – and contributed to – sweeping social and cultural change in their lifetimes, each with their own story.

National Treasures is at Muse Studio, Sydney until 8 March 2015.
