Sydney heats up for Mardi Gras

Queens, bikes, colour, glitz, dazzle, razzle and a bit of flesh are on show this year at one of the world’s most outrageous events. Yes that’s the annual Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras that’s set to heat up the city from 12 February to 4 March.

This year’s lineup looks set to blow the rest away with sequence, studs, costumes, song and dance including Australian diva Kylie Minogue.

The main event is the parade on March 3 from 7.45-10pm running along Oxford and Flinders Streets in the city. But there are plenty of other events too including the CoolChange Harbour party (25th), The Laneway (4th) and much more.

Book in early to make sure you get your tickets but the parade is of course free. For the best vantage points go early or you can also buy tickets for the Glamstand.

For all the details check out the official site –
