There's no more perfect combination of passion and people than The Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade. Every year, hundreds of thousands of spectators from all over the world bring the city to a standstill as they cheer on a jaw dropping parade of over 12,000 fabulous people from all corners of the LGBTIQ communities.
This dizzying spectacle flows like a river of queer humanity, switching effortlessly between sexy satire and from high brow to sequined eyebrow. Tying it all together is an overarching sense of love and a joyous celebration of the hard won freedom to be whoever you are.
This is a free event. Be sure to arrive early to experience one of the world's most memorable parades. Premium ticketed viewing areas are also available. Visit the official Mardi Gras website for details.
