WHY DID SHE HAVE TO TELL THE WORLD?
HALF HOUR TV DOCUMENTARY - IN DEVELOPMENT
75 year-old Phyllis Papps and 88 year-old Francesca Curtis are many things. Writers. Researchers. Radical Feminists. Partners.
They are also the first lesbian couple to have their coming out nationally televised in Australia almost fifty years ago. Now, residing in the isolated fishing village of Rhyll, not even their neighbours could have guessed their profound contribution to Australian Lesbian history.
