To pay this tribute, Celebrate Ageing, a group of women, met in Melbourne's trams to hold hands.
Catherine Barrett, organizer and director of Celebrate Ageing, said that it was very moving:
"We had 20 lesbian elders board the tram, and a group of LGBTI community members come to send us off.
"We also had a number of straight folks who heard about the project and wanted to come along to show their support.
"This was very moving and brought a number of us to tears."
She also added that women were still afraid to hold hands in public, by fear of people's reactions. Some of these women were straight.
In any case, it was a very nice tribute.
