Social Media Guidelines

Social Media Guidelines

Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras celebrates the power and beauty of diversity within our social communities. We value participation, passion, kindness and acceptance as being fundamental to inspiring the world to love each other.

We primarily use our social channels to share our news updates and also to provide a voice and platform for everyone within our LGBTQI+ communities to share what is important to them. We value your thoughts, your interactions and your contributions.

We want to provide open forums where conversation is lively and topics can be discussed without fear. A variety of feedback about the organisation and festival events can be shared with us.

To ensure everyone has an opportunity to participate and engage within our vibrant social channels, we’ve adopted some key guidelines that we ask all users to follow:

  • A 'Like', 'Favourite', or similar action does not constitute endorsement or agreement but it acknowledges that we've seen the post.
  • Please don’t share private or confidential information, yours or someone else’s.
  • Please don’t share inappropriate content including anything obscene, threatening, offensive or needlessly repetitive. Think before you post.
  • Please be respectful of each other, our staff and our volunteers. Be kind, listen and have empathy to others. It’s ok to disagree but it’s not ok to be disrespectful.
  • Please be constructive with any criticism of Mardi Gras or others.
  • Please don’t solicit sales or spam our profiles without our permission.
  • From time to time we may need to moderate and remove content posted on our social channels that we feel breach these guidelines. We may decide to block or ban users that have either significantly or repeatedly breached these guidelines.

We’ll try to be consistent if any action to moderate is necessary, but if you feel that we’ve made a mistake, please contact our team via email on reception@mardigrasarts.org.au with an outline of what’s happened so we can investigate further. We’ll endeavour to provide you with a timely written response.

Reporting Inappropriate Content

While our channels are monitored we might sometimes miss something that shouldn’t be on our pages. Please feel free to either use the inbuilt reporting or messaging functionality of each platform, or contact our team using reception@mardigrasarts.org.au so that any inappropriate content can be reviewed and removed if necessary.
