The Queers for Reconciliation Website, Australia: "Queers for Reconciliation is an inclusive collaboration. ... This year marks not just the 20th anniversary of the Mardi Gras parade but also ten years since the first organised Aboriginal presence in the parade. (A 'Black Gays' banner was on the 1980 Parade). 1998 is also being touted as the year of the 'race-based election' in Australia following the government's decision to pursue its racist 'ten point plan' opposing the High Court's Wik decision and Aboriginal land rights. For many thousands of Australians, in every city and town, it is vital to the future of this country that the Reconciliation process occur. We believe that it is vital that our communities play their part. A number of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender organisations have already made statements this year supporting Reconciliation and organisations are involved in practical and ongoing support - we are not the only ones taking action. Our website contains information about the group as well as extensive information about Wik and the 'Stolen generation'; a section full of actions you can take to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and Reconciliation; andan online apology to the stolen generation from our communities; as well as a guestbook to contribute your thoughts on Reconciliation and a large section of links including information about indigenous gay and lesbian peoples around the world and the relationship between black and gay communities."

The Prinzhorn Collection: Arts by Patients of the Psychiatric Clinic of the University of Heidelberg. Named for the the art historian and physician, Hans Prinzhorn, who began his work at the Psychiatric Clinic in 1919, this rare art collection reflects the creative workings of over 500 patients, nearly all of whom had been diagnosed as chronically mentally ill and had been institutionalized, in some cases, for decades. For many years, the art collection went unattended in the clinic. In the 1970s, however, a hospital worker convinced the Volkswagen Foundation to finance a four-year project, through which the Collection was restored, catalogued and documented in accord with current museum practices. Very little of the works are currently available for online viewing; the community in Germany has thus posted this homepage to alert the international art community to the need for help in getting the works available to the public.
