2009 Mardi Gras Parade

Would you like to march in the Mardi Gras Parade and support LGBTQ

This year's Mardi Gras theme is "Nations United." The Amnesty International parade entry highlights the fact that 77 countries have laws that imprison homosexuals and in another 7 countries homosexuals face the death penalty. Millions of people around the world face persecution and discrimination because of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
Your support can help win their freedom.

Show your support and march with the NSW LGBTQ Amnesty International Network members and raise community awareness in relation to the persecution of LGBTQ people.

The Mardi Gras parade starts at Hyde Park at 7:45pm on Saturday, March 7. Parade participants must arrive before 5.30pm to enter the start area (where you can check out all the other floats).

Cost is $30/$20 (concession), which includes a limited edition t-shirt.
