The NFSA has completed a digital restoration of Witches and Faggots, Dykes and Poofters (One in Seven Collective, produced by Digby Duncan, 1980).

The documentary tells the story of the very first Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras on 24 June 1978, a protest march that ended in 53 arrests.

In this clip, a lesbian activist talks about how important it is to own terms of abuse like dykes and poofters and take pride in them instead.
