Several hundred thousand people turned out for Sydney’s 33rd Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade on Feb. 27.
Nearly 10,000 people took part in the parade, and there were 135 floats. One entry featured 150 dancing George Michaels.
Transsexual U.S. model Amanda Lepore led the procession which, despite its overwhelming frivolity, also was a protest against the federal Senate’s recent rejection of a bill to legalize same-sex marriage.
