The 2017 Mardi Gras CREATING EQUALITY artwork features a selection of stunning photographs from the ongoing My People | My Tribe photography project titled #barenakedtruth.
These amazing images shine a spotlight on the wonderful diversity of our LGBTQI community.
The My People | My Tribe project endeavours to create a platform for LGBTQI stories to be heard. After the horrific shootings at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, the project was inspired by the quote "You can't hate someone whose story you know." Each volunteer participant not only bared their bodies but also shared their personal, honest and inspirational experiences.
You can see eight of the photographs here that feature in the 2017 Mardi Gras campaign and read the powerful stories of Katherine, Kate, Michelle, Laura, Josh, Mikey, Decoda, Jacob and Tam. We’ll feature more soon.
Look out for our giant 3D Equality letters featuring the photographs. They will feature at Fair Day, the Parade, Party and special events around town throughout Mardi Gras 2017.
