2017 Rainbow Flag Raising @ Sydney Town Hall

It was a wet afternoon outside but that didn't dampen spirits at Sydney Town Hall, where Lord Mayor Clover Moore welcomed the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras crew for the annual Rainbow Flag Raising Ceremony. The Lord Mayor also presented Professor Andrew Grulich from the Kirby Institute with the Key to the City in recognition of the Institute's outstanding service to communities affected by HIV and AIDS through groundbreaking research and treatment.
