This paper departs from notions of the ‘demise’ of gay spaces, (re)conceptualizing Sydney’s LGBTQ neighborhoods as mobile and relational moorings that are not fixed and immutable but repeatedly reconstructed and regrounded from flows of people, knowledge, and capital. It examines the physical displacement, representations of mobility, and embodied mobile practices underpinning these changes in inner-city Sydney. Its purpose is to make conceptual and practical connections between the significance of ‘place making’ and ‘mobility’ to LGBTQ lives, communities, and politics
