Leaflet - Flaunt Your Fetish II, Yellow, circa 1991-1992 Document Reg. No: SH 932179

Alternative Name(s): Flyer, Handout

Yellow leaflet titled 'FLAUNT YOUR FETISH II', advertising performances of various bands and dancers at the Tote Hotel in Collingwood for the Flaunt Your Fetish mixed gay event. Made around 1991-1992 and used in Fitzroy, Melbourne. Information on costs, times, date, venue and the sponsors are provided.

From a collection of posters and ephemera displayed on the walls of Mario's Cafe, 303 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy, Melbourne, between December 1991 and Easter 1992. The collection was removed when the wall was repainted and renovated. Posters were put up with tape and 'Blu-tac'; some damage to some items resulted when these were removed. The collection, including repeats, is essentially as it was when removed (cigarette smoke included). The donor noted that 'Mario's Cafe in Brunswick Street, Fitzroy is one of the very popular 'cool' places to be. It accumulates on its walls an extraordinary plethora of posters and ephemera. ...'
