Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras will soon be undertaking a review of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras and NSW Police Accord.
As a part of this process, we will be consulting with our communities to better understand concerns and areas for improvement – which will inform how we approach refreshing the Accord with the NSW Police.
Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras is currently reviewing our constitutions to bring them in line with legislation and current best practice.
Reconciliation Action Plan
While Mardi Gras has informally engaged in reconciliation initiatives for many years, a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) provides us with an official framework to further recognise and celebrate LGBTQI+ First Nations history and culture, and create opportunities for reconciliation within Mardi Gras and the broader LGBTQI+ community.
Our RAP will guide us on how we can practically support and elevate our LGBTQI+ First Nations community.
