Ian Byford, author of 'Passing Glances: A Gay History of Cairns' leads a walk of sites of gay significance in inner city Cairns.

Ian will be at Paradiso for breakfast from 8.30am so if you'd like to join him come along, buy a coffee and he'll gladly regale you with stories of Cairns' gay past.

At 9.30am the walk leaves Paradiso on a stroll past some of Cairns most beautiful and iconic buildings and Ian will share their secret history.

He'll share a few stories he would have loved to have included in the book but couldn't.

And there's a special souvenir map of historical gay Cairns for all the participants.
