Luciano and Georgia Keats, in partnership with the Australian Lesbian and Gay Archive(ALGA), present Queer-ways: Retracing Melbourne’s Queer Footprint. Queer-ways maps the queer cartography of Melbourne, combining queer stories and voices of Melbourne’s past and present into a permanent, interactive record of being queer in Melbourne.

Working in collaboration with ALGA, we will locate queer landmarks, venues and queered spaces significant to Melbourne’s queer history. A digital map of this data will be publicly available, encouraging people to physically/digitally explore Melbourne on a self-guided queer walking tour post COVID-19.

The digital map will be turned into illustrations by LUCIANO and Georgia Keats. These illustrations will become interactive through the AR app EyeJack. Stories of each area will be recounted by recordings of queer voices and supported through subtitles viewable in the app, ensuring the project remains accessible to diverse audiences.
