Sydney Mardi Gras Photos 2015

I promised photos of my participation in this year’s Sydney Mardi Gras, so here they are! I was the photographer for the Free Gay & Happy community group’s parade entry called, “Come Out Come Out My Pretty!” As you’ll see in the photos, it obviously had a Wizard of Oz theme going for it. The idea behind the float, was that there are still a lot of people in our communities that need help coming out, and we should still treat them with love and respect when they need it. Everyone’s journey is different, but we’ve all been down the yellow brick road! Mr. Sparkles was the driver for the float, and you’ll see an example of the crowd in the last photo. This is the 37th year for the parade with more than 10,000 people taking part, and over 300,000 lining the streets! Check out our spectacular costumes and camaraderie below as we contributed to the half a ton of glitter that’s also used for the event!

    Makes me smile! Looks like fun was had by all! And, I might add…love that the theme of the float was supporting those who for whatever reasons, haven't 'come out' yet.
