The Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade is an event that captivates the nation and reverberates around the world.
Join 10,000 fabulous people as they unite for a glittering explosion of pride in the heart of Sydney’s gay and lesbian district.
Born from a single night of political protest in 1978, the true Mardi Gras spirit lives on 38 years later, bringing the city to a standstill with hundreds and thousands lining the streets in support of equality, pride and a dazzling spectacle of sparkles and self-expression.
The Parade joyously celebrates just how far we have come, and accepts the challenge of the journey ahead.
From the outrageously adorned, to the sassy, satirical and serious, Mardi Gras welcomes the community in a fabulous festivity of love that knows no bounds.
