Event description

Description

Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras aims to be a vibrant and inclusive showcase of everyone under and over the rainbow.

But we often hear from our community that our name isn’t inclusive – only specifying ‘Gay’ and ‘Lesbian’, without mention of transgender, bisexual, intersex, or any other sexuality or gender identity. Many of our Mardi Gras members, community groups, event organisers, patrons and visitors question us on how we’re making our festival more inclusive and how our name could reflect our community and our people’s diversity more accurately.

Changing a name with decades of community history behind it isn’t something we’d do lightly though – we want to hear from our members, supporters and wider community on ideas, concerns and hopes for any name change.

You're invited to join us at our Community Consultation Event: Arrivals from 3:45pm for a 4pm start on Sunday 7 April at Darlinghurst Theatre Company, Eternity Playhouse, 39 Burton Street Darlinghurst.

Additionally, your feedback on email is very welcome. Email your comments to membership@mardigrasarts.org.au we will make sure your comments are read by the entire Mardi Gras team and Board.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch, and you’ll hear from us soon with updates every step of the way.

Yours,
The Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Membership team.
