What Is Sydney (Gay and Lesbian) Mardi Gras?

The Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras is a colorful annual celebration in the city to show its support for the LGBT community. It is an annual gay pride parade featuring large floats, flamboyant costumes, and contests that attracts thousands of visitors from all around Australia.
Visitors from other countries also attend this event, making it one of the largest LGBT festivals in the world. The world-famous Mardi Gras Parade and Party, Bondi Drag Races, Harbor Party, the academic and discussion panel Queer Thinking, and the Fair Day, which are staples of the festival, attracts about 70,000 people every year. The event now generates an annual income of $30 million for the state of New South Wales, considered to be the state's second-largest event in terms of economic impact.
The Mardi Gras started in the 1980s as a reaction to the arrests made by authorities during pro-gay rights protests. More than two decades later, the Parade still maintains its political edge, with activities all designed to support LGBT rights.
