New Pride Not Prejudice film - Expunged homosexual convictions

To coincide with today’s formal apology from the Victorian Government to the LGBTI community for those convicted under unjust and prejudiced laws against homosexual acts, the Commission’s latest film in the Pride not Prejudice series deals with the issue of expunged homosexual convictions.

Featuring interviews with Anna Brown, Jamie Gardiner, Graham Carberry, Clem Newton-Brown, Lauren Matthews and the Hon. Martin Foley MP, the film talks about the impact these historical homosexual convictions have had on people’s lives, why it was so important to allow the expungement of the records, and why we need to protect people from discrimination on the basis of an expunged homosexual conviction.

The series has been produced by the Commission along with RMIT Master of Media students, and Pride not Prejudice – expunged homosexual convictions is the second of the student-edited films to be published.
