'I love this state - do not get me wrong. I love Queensland to bits. I don't want to live anywhere else in the world. But at that time we were four million years behind everything else, everyone else.'- LYN FRASER Since the end of the Joh Bjelke-Petersen State government, conditions for LGBTIQ identified Queenslanders have improved but remain a tenuous arrangement. As the struggle for rights continues, North of the Border uses documentary photography and first-person narratives to tell the intimate stories of eight lesbians who found themselves existing outside of 'norm', and how that experience informs how they identify as Queenslanders today.
