Apology to the 78'ers

24 FEBRUARY 2016: 

Apologising to the 78’ers, Darren Goodsir, Editor in Chief of The Sydney Morning Herald, said: 

“In 1978, The Sydney Morning Herald reported the names, addresses and professions of people arrested during public protests to advance gay rights. The paper at the time was following the custom and practice of the day. We acknowledge and apologise for the hurt and suffering that reporting caused. It would never happen today. We have made contact with representatives of the 78’ers so we can apologise in person.”
