Overview

Dr Gertrude Glossip returns to take us on a coastal cruise through Rainbow History. The seaside suburbs are awash with history, and Gertrude is casting her Rainbow lens on Glenelg and Port Adelaide. These everchanging suburbs held key roles in the colonisation of South Australia, and their growth into booming modern suburbs shaped the establishment of Adelaide as we know it today. Beneath the suburban chic exteriors, the Gay Bay and the Port are loaded with queer stories. From the ever-evolving impact of Rainbow businesses and festivals to secret rendezvous with sailors, the seaside suburbs hold a bounty of Rainbow history to uncover, and the Queen of the Walk has risen to the task. Gert by Sea is a mini history book of two walks plus a bonus beachside whistle-stop tour, which extends upon the success of Queen of the Walk: Gertrude's Guide to Gay Adelaide History. The Rainbow History Walks delve into the undercurrents of queer history that exist along the Adelaide coastline. Join Dr Glossip as she regales us with the highlights of her Gert by Sea history walks.

Author Information

Will Sergeant and Dr Gertrude Glossip are two sides of one coin. Will has been involved in gay activism since the 1970s. He participated the first Adelaide Pride March in 1973 and the first Sydney Mardi Gras in 1978. Gertrude, his alter-ego, was created in 1993. Both have been active participants in every Feast Festival in a variety of roles and performances. Gertrude's walks on history, art and zoo wild sex are now the 'stuff of legend'! Will has served on numerous Feast advisory committees and was named an ambassador for the 2018 Festival. In 2021, he was named South Australian Historian of the Year by the History Council of South Australia for his contribution to Adelaide Rainbow History. Dr Glossip's debut book, Queen of the Walk: Gertrude's Guide to Adelaide History, was released in 2021.
