Abstract An analysis of 464 cases between 1860 and 1954 from Queensland against male homosexual activities is presented to explore how Queensland's criminal justice system dealt with the issue then. It is observed that the police chose severe charges and manipulated evidence to ensure conviction, thereby attempting to curtail the emerging gay subculture.
