Last night, the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade brought the city to a standstill in a glittering explosion of pride. An estimated 200,000 people looked on as the biggest and longest parade in recent years, made up of 178 floats and 12,500 participants, marched, rolled and danced through the heart of Sydney’s Gay and Lesbian district.
Born from a single night of celebration turned political protest, the true Mardi Gras spirit lives on 38 years later. The Mardi Gras theme of ‘Momentum” saw thousands of LGBTQI people and their supporters from all over the world come together to joyously celebrate how far the community has come, as well as recognise the journey ahead.

Following a morning tea reception at Parliament House on 1st June 2015, Labor leader Bill Shorten and his deputy Tanya Plibersek introduced a bill into the Australian House of Representatives to legalise same-sex marriage. Although debate on the bill was immediately adjourned due to the fact that the opposition does not have the numbers to push it further, Prime Minister Tony Abbott responded by leaving the door open for a possible free vote on the issue in the Liberal party room at some point in the future, with the proviso that it is in response to a cross-party bill. More photos from the event are below.
There is no more perfect combination of passion and people than The Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade. Every year, hundreds of thousands of spectators from all over the world bring the city to a standstill as they cheer on a jaw dropping parade of 10,000 fabulous people.
