It's nearly time for one of the most brilliant, bright and absolutely fabulous events in Australia - The Sydney Mardi Gras 2019!!!!!
Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras (SGLMG) is one of the oldest continuously operating LGBTQI organisations in Australia. SGLMG was built on the foundations laid by early community activists who fought for LGBTQI rights in a time of wide-spread, institutionalised oppression and discrimination. From these origins, SGLMG has evolved to include a strong focus on celebration while maintaining a commitment to social justice for LGBTQI communities.
The 41st Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Festival starts on Friday 15 February, running through until Sunday 3 March with the Parade on the 2nd of March at 7pm.
This amazing festival is burting at the seems with club events, live shows, art, parties and much, much more! An amazing celebration full of love and respect that is an absolute joy to be a part of.
