With recent updates to restrictions on gatherings and dancefloors, it has become clear that we will be unable to stage a range of events you might typically see during the Mardi Gras Festival.
From a comedy gala showcasing Australia’s funniest LGBTQI+ talent to an insightful series of talks held by queer thought leaders, here's four enticing events confirmed for February!
"Mardi Gras gives a lot of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from different communities right across the country an opportunity to come down to Sydney and be together."
"I enjoy being a part of something that creates experiences that foster communities in a welcoming and supportive way."
"God, I love a dancefloor. Dancefloors are a sea of happy. They are a beautiful and joyous place where everyone’s just smiling and dancing and enjoying being with each other."
"I was 17 when I went to my first Mardi Gras Parade... there was a whole community out there and I wasn’t alone."
