Some of Sydney’s most prominent LGBTI personalities are preparing to lip-sync to classic songs in a brand new fundraiser for Mardi Gras.

TV presenter Gretel Killeen and the Stonewall Hotel’s drag diva hostess Polly Petrie will host a night of Lip-Sync Duels on Saturday 27 June at the Paddington Town Hall.

Each performer will be competing on behalf of other LGBTI organisations in a bid to win the grand final prize of a Mardi Gras fundraising pack worth more than $4,000.

Confirmed contestants include Alex Greenwich MP, Prof. Kerryn Phelps, 2dayFM newsreader Geoff Field, community stalwarts Sen Raj and Lawrence Stark, plus Mardi Gras Co-chairs Fran Bowron and Paul Savage performing as a duo. Also confirmed is Ox Gold breakfast presenter and Mardi Gras Board member James Breko Brechney, and the wonderful Shelly Silberman is coming out of retirement for the night, with more contestants to be announced soon.
