Today is a very special day in Sydney. It is its annual (gay and lesbian) Mardi Gras celebration, with an evening parade watched by around 400,000 lining the streets and a huge dance party afterwards. It has been many years since the parade was properly covered on free to air tv, but this year SBS2 steps up to the crease with what I would guess is an edited package, to be screened on Sunday night. Many businesses also get on board, as has the ANZ Bank.
Happy Mardi Gras.
PS This morning Victor posted a photo of the Queen Elizabeth dressed up for the occasion in Sydney Harbour.
