Welcome

Alice’s Garage is a national project empowering LGBTI elders and promoting healthy LGBTI ageing in Australia. The project pays homage to Ms Alice Anderson (pictured), who set up a Motor Service in 1920s Melbourne. Miss Anderson’s Motor Service had all female employees and empowered women with information and opportunities to learn more about driving and using a motor vehicle (read more here). Drawing on Alice’s principles of empowerment and opportunity, Alice’s Garage includes a blog for LGBTI elders and a number of projects focusing on LGBTI Ageing and Elders. If you have suggestions for the blog please contact us by clicking here.

Paul: My mask is a bird. It symbolises feeling beautiful and free as a gay man. Wonderful, outstanding.

Pride means thinking, luck, colour, greatfulness, mix, meating with others, meaning, feeling winning

Gwen: My mask suggests “in the mood”. Be(ing?) in the mood and to be proud to know your sexuality and have no “hang ups”.

Pride means the courage to stand with and alongside any whom I wish to. The freedom to love, to live, to be as I choose – any way I want to be

Keith – Never a Crime

Keith: My mask is bright. I’m just an ordinary person. I’m not one thing. I’m useful, valuable and handy

Pride to me is about lightness and brightness and money is very important. We can’t do without it. Pride is an easy word to say, there is more than one word. Another word for me is useful and concerned – keep everything moving

My mask is bright. I’m just an ordinary person. I’m not one thing. I’m useful, valuable and handy.
