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.
In 2019 SGLMG won the bid to host Sydney WorldPride 2023 (SWP) a one-off global pride event. Although SGLMG and SWP are separate organisations they work towards a common goal of creating world class events, programs and content focused on the celebration and recognition of the LGBTQI+ community in Sydney, Australia and the world.
