Rodney Croome

Rodney’s talk marking the 30th anniversary of the birth of the modern Tasmanian LGBTQI rights movement in Tasmania will reveal a little known but important side of Hobart’s history.

Rodney studied history at the University of Tasmania. He worked as an interpretation guide at the Port Arthur Historic Site before becoming leading the Tasmanian gay law reform campaign from 1988. He is a regular commentator on Tasmanian historical and social issues.
