Parade 2022 Gallery

The 2022 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade returned to the Sydney Cricket Ground in a dazzling display of self-expression, proving that when we unite we shine brighter. A stadium crowd of 40,000 spectators cheered on as 5,800 marchers from over 160 parade entries marched onto the field in a vibrant display of diversity and unity.
