Since its dramatic beginnings in 1878, the annual Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras has grown into an internationally significant celebration of gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual identity, diversity and pride.(...)
I am proud of my association with Mardi Gras over the past 23 years and always look forward to joining my gay and lesbian friends in the 2010 Mardi Gras Parade. This year, I also look forward to raising the Rainbow Flag over the Town Hall to mark the beginning of the Mardi Gras season.
