HAPPY MARDI GRAS SYDNEY!!!
So why is 2018 such a special year for Mardi Gras? Well it’s special because, although it’s taken Australia far longer than other countries to make this particular recognition, we’ve finally gotten there in the end. Yes, Australia has recognised marriage equality and as it only happened a few months ago this year’s Mardi Gras is naturally the perfect moment to shout our delight from every rooftop of very building in Sydney. I’m sure there will be many a spectacular float this year that celebrates this tremendous triumph. For the first time there will actually be a float dedicated to same sex parents and their beautiful little families. Which is such a symbol of what this fight for equality has been about, the recognition of the right to love and live as any other couple or family does in this great nation of ours. Mardi Gras is less about sex as it is about the need for basic human rights, it’s just a celebration of freedom and the right to express ourselves with respect and dignity.
It may have taken far too long to make the acknowledgement of the need for equality, but we got there in the end. So tonight Australia, Sydney in particular, can celebrate in all her glory, a spectacular win for the LGBT community. It’s a night for the community and everyone that lent their support, to scream and cry and laugh with joy for the historic win for equality and humanity!!!
Wishing you all a marvellous and beautiful Mardi Gras!
May love conquer all injustice.
