The Pride movement in Australia started well before the first Mardi Gras in 1978. In 1970, the national network known as CAMP (Campaign Against Moral Persecution) was founded in Sydney.

The momentum of CAMP quickly spread to other States, fuelling the first LGBTQI+ rights marches and political campaigns for changes to oppressive laws and systems.

50 years later, some of the original members of CAMP NSW are compiling a book of newly commissioned professional portrait photographs of members of CAMP NSW and its counterpart organisations across Australia, together with their personal stories about the impact CAMP (known as Society Five in Victoria) had on their lives at the time.
