The Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras Festival is here!! YAAAS! Mardi Gras has a proud 42-year history of highlighting and fostering rights and equality for LGBTQI individuals and communities. In 2020 the aim is to celebrate all that has been achieved, and shine the spotlight brightly on ways we can all work together to eliminate discrimination and prejudice in all its forms. The event is run over 2 weeks from the day of love, 14th February to 1st March 2020 with the major parade on Saturday, February 29th 2020. What a fantastic way to spend the Leap Year! So if you haven't booked your flights yet, you're going to be sorry when you miss out - They don't call it 'Gay Christmas' for nothing!!
The spectacular Mardi Gras Festival will showcase the amazing LGBTQI diversity and difference, and unity.

From queer artists to thought leaders, Mardi Gras 2020 is an opportunity to visit the next destinations on our journey of diversity, inclusion and social justice. <3
