Since the first march for freedom in 1978, Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras has grown into a leading international cultural arts festival with a street Parade that has grown to include 12,500 participants and reach a local, online and broadcast audience of over 13 million people.
Making Mardi Gras happen takes a large team of people. We have year-round and seasonal staff to help produce the season, in addition to our committed volunteer teams. We are always interested in knowing more about people who want to be a part of the team.
Mardi Gras is one of the oldest, continuously operating LGBTQIA+ organisations in Australia. We’re a non-for-profit member-based organisation which was built on the foundations laid by early community activists who fought for LGBTQIA+ rights in a time of wide-spread, institutionalised oppression and discrimination. From these origins, Mardi Gras has evolved to include a strong focus on celebration while maintaining a commitment to social justice for LGBTQIA+ communities.
We encourage applications from a diverse range of applicants. Our organisation is an EEO employer and welcome applications from people who identify as sexuality, sex and/or gender diverse, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, and people who are differently abled.
