"Queen of Pop" World Premiere

Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras is proud to premiere our 'Queen Of Pop' video tribute to the one and ONLY Madonna.

The clip, features over 200 vogueing volunteers of all ages, performing several of Madonna’s iconic tracks, including the original recordings of Material Girl, Vogue, Express Yourself and Living For Love. Queen Of Pop is a heartfelt tribute in recognition and respect of Madonna’s support for our LGBTQI communities throughout her career. 

As an artist, Madonna has helped define a generation during an era that has seen huge global changes, and diversity has ALWAYS been core to her message of self-expression and love. We hope that our video tribute goes someway to reflect the sheer joy, infinite love and deep respect that our diverse LGBTQI communities have for a unique performer who continues to empower, celebrate, and support us. 

The clip was produced exclusively by TheFanBaseHq for Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras and was filmed on Valentine’s Day at Darling Harbour, Sydney during the Month Of Love celebrations. 

With massive thanks to all our Vogueing Volunteers, Maddison Georgopoulos and her Material Boys, Coco Jumbo, Little X, Decoda Secret and the Queen Of Pop Dancers, Rhys Bobridge and the one and only Megadonna! With special thanks to everyone at Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority & The FanBase HQ.
