Anne E Stewart asks, 'So who was the first Gay in the Village?'

So who was the first Gay in the Village?

A History of colourful Daylesford

Award winning local storyteller, social historian and writer Anne E Stewart has put her research skills into gear to uncover little known facts, legendary characters and the origins of the Chillout Festival. The show explores why and when our little village became so GLBT (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender) friendly.

Highlights include photos, documents and oral histories that tell the story of our town. Anne will also feature photos and discussion behind her last contribution to Chillout, the 2010 St Dorothy of Daylesford’ float featuring the fabulous Miss Mille Minogue.
