Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras

Yes, well, I'm late, but it wasn't TOO long ago. An annual cultural festival, culminating in the fabulous parade through Sydney's gay heartland. Takes place around the first Saturday in March. Good time, as it's usually quite hot still, which is necessary considering the amount of bare flesh.

While there's lots of fun had by all, there's still plenty of room for protest, by drawing attention to ongoing injustices. I was there in support of my gay and lesbian friends, colleagues and the community, to take part in a Trade Union float protesting at the new workplace laws introduced by the Howard government.
