Get Ready for Mardi Gras

This year the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Festival will run from Friday 19 February to Sunday 7 March with COVID safe events. Check: > HERE.

The annual Queer Screen film festival is Thursday 18 February to Thursday 4 March: > HERE.  

Lord Mayor Clover Moore and I will again be joining the Mardi Gras parade on Saturday 6 March. This year the parade has moved to the Sydney Cricket Ground and participant numbers have been reduced significantly in order to keep celebrations safe. Unfortunately, this means that we are not able to have our usual large group of volunteers and supporters join us. If you have not received an invitation and are desperate to join us this year, please email HERE if you would like to be put on the waiting list.

Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras and Facebook Australia have a new $100,000 grant fund to support venues, small businesses and LGBTQI+ artists to host COVID-safe events and employ LGBTQI+ artists for the 2021 Mardi Gras. Submissions close 31 January 2021: > HERE.

Let's work together to celebrate and protect our great city!
