Building on 4 decades of powerful protest and LGBTIQ celebration, the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade is our biggest night of the year.
A bustling extravaganza that brings Sydney to a standstill and shines a global spotlight on LGBTIQ lives, culture, communities and creativity.
With spectacular floats, thousands of participants, a veritable smorgasbord of glittering colour and dynamic shape, the parade showcases the glitz and glamour of our community.
Drag queens, Dykes on Bikes, Sydney lifesavers, community heroes and many more come together to produce what has become the parade that stops the nation.
Expect colour, expect life, expect huge crowds of excited parade viewers lining the streets. Make your way to Oxford or Flinders streets early to secure a good spot!
