Work With Mardi GrasWork With Mardi Gras

Since the first march for freedom in 1978, Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras (SGMLG) 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.

SGLMG is one of the oldest, continuously operating LGBTQI organisations in Australia. SGLMG is a non-for-profit member-based organisation which was built on the foundations laid by early community activists who fought for LGBTQI rights in a time of wide-spread, institutionalised oppression and discrimination.  From these origins, SGLMG has evolved to include a strong focus on celebration while maintaining a commitment to social justice for LGBTQI communities. 

SGLMG encourages applications from a diverse range of applicants. We are 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.
