Commercial Road Prahran/South Yarra has changed over the last three decades and has changed again. It has gone from being a street for the market and light industry, to Melbourne's booming gay strip, to now being a mix of the market and local shops and restaurants with a large accommodation hotel dominating the streetscape. While you can still see many gay people in the street, they are mostly going about their business of general shopping, rather than dining in gay cafes, going to gay bookshops, buying clothes for a gay night out etc etc.
This mural is in Cato Street, which runs off Commercial Road on western side of Pran (sic) Central and although I was initially alarmed when I could not see any immediately recognisably gay person, I did spy a gay couple after a bit. You name a type of person in Melbourne, and there is a good chance you can see them in Commercial Road. It used be nothing for old Greek ladies on their way to the market with their shopping jeeps passing by still dressed from the night before drag queens having breakfast outdoors. Apparently it is not an area for girrrlzzz. Perhaps they are represented in a Northcote or Fitzroy mural.
With limited space, photo stitching was not terribly successful, but you get the idea.
