    Episode 9: Sydney’s dark gay history:

    Australia’s gay capital Sydney has a dark history. There was a time when gay men were being violently bashed and murdered. The police did nothing, so a group of leather lesbians decided to get on their motorcycles to patrol and protect their gay brothers. Shannon Power talks to their leader, Nora Savona, about how they saved many gay men from homophobic violence.

    Created and presented by Shannon Power. Music by Petter Wallenberg.
