Due to the uncertainty of lockdowns and a possible surge in Covid19 deaths, Mardi Gras Chief Executive Albert Kruger has announced that the Mardi Gras will once again be held at the Sydney Cricket Ground. There will be no floats but many opportunities will be available to highlight the creativity and flair of the LGBTI community.
The Oxford Street Parade fostered a sense of inclusivity with thousands of families taking what was once an event of moral disapproval, to their hearts.
As this will be a ticketed event inevitably some of that community enthusiasm will be lost.
Nevertheless, as are all Mardi Gras parades and happenings, this will be an eye popping festival for the viewers and spectators who will attend.
