Deep Water: The Real Story

The full account of the gay hate crime epidemic that bloodied Sydney’s coastline.

Up to 80 murders, 30 unsolved cases and thousands of assaults. The attackers are united by contempt; their targets united by their sexual identity… 

For the first time Deep Water: The Real Story presents the full account of the gay hate crime epidemic that bloodied Sydney’s coastline, as depicted in the drama Deep Water starring Noah Taylor and Yael Stone. 

The Real Story stirs up old cases in the hope that new evidence will rise to the surface. It sheds light on the many deaths officially recorded as ‘unsolved’, ‘suicide’ or ‘death by misadventure’. Could these men be the victims of gay hate murders? 

This is the story of how a wave of vicious crime engulfed a community but was invisible to most. A tale of police ineptitude, of a society riddled by homophobia.  

Perhaps after all these years, it’s not too late for those responsible to come forward or be found.
