The theme for Mardi Gras 2019 is... FEARLESS.
Fearless does not mean we have no fear – everyone experiences fear, it’s a part of who we are. Fearless means living our lives in a courageous way, taking action despite your fears.
If we can develop fearlessness there is no limit to what we can achieve. Just look at what has been accomplished by LGBTQI advocates, activists, individuals and groups that through fearlessness have stood up for who they are, who they want to be, for equality and inclusion, ensuring other LGBTQI people feel supported, accepted and safe.
Mardi Gras is an opportunity for all of us to shine, express who we are and be a beacon of LGBTQI pride for those among us who are still finding the strength to be who they are. So don't let fear hold us back - take risks, be strong, courageous, and be proud and let’s all come together at Mardi Gras 2019 and celebrate fearlessly.
