With the easing of COVID-19 restrictions, Sydney Gay And Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade tickets are back on sale with 30,000-plus people expected to attend the event at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Saturday 6 March.
This year the parade’s theme is RISE and will bring together community groups and organisations just a skip away from Sydney’s gay heart on Oxford Street.
You can also get your Mardi Gras fix at a series of Festival events including Queer Thinking with a panel curated by Julie McCrossin, Benjamin Law and Patrick Abboud. The interactive talks will be held on Saturday 27 February at the NSW Teachers Federation Auditorium.
Other Mardi Gras Festival events include My Trans Story which is a sharing of personal stories and experiences of proud trans story tellers from Sydney and beyond. Among the panellists are Tea Uglow, Andrew Guy, Rusty Nannup Joel Murray, Olivia Stewart and Victoria Anthony.
On Saturday 27 February, My Drag Story will ask panellists to share the back story to find out about the person behind the drag. Among the line-up are Amelia Airhead, Cindy Pastel, Nana Miss Koori, and Sexy Galexy.
If you can’t make the Festival events in person you can attend virtually. Be quick as tickets are selling fast.
