Description :
Flyer produced by the Adelaide Gay Activists Alliance advertising a vigil for gay rights to be held on the steps of Parliament House on Thursday 5 July 1973. Following the pattern of the radical American Gay Activists Alliance, the early 1970s saw the formation of similar organisations in several Australian states, seeking to decriminalise homosexuality and provide greater equality for gays and lesbians.
