Event description

Description

The official launch and celebration of Richard Hedger's book TELLING TALES - 40 Fabulous Years of Floats, Fun, Fantasy and Fortitude.

Sydney portrait photographer, Richard Hedger, has shot 40 original portraits of members of the LGBTI+ community. In parallel, Hedger has documented each individual’s personal story to tell of the ever-evolving role the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras has played in their life.

Portrayed in Hedger’s book are the faces of the familiar, the famous and not so famous, of sung and unsung heroes both local and international. They are the images of people who have been brought together to share their experiences, thoughts, reflections, memories and insights with regard to the impact and relevance to them of the SGLMG. They consist of political activists, actors, academics, athletes, authors, carers, chefs, comics, designers, directors, DJs, editors, entertainers, entrepreneurs, historians, journalists, lawyers, performers, playwrights, photographers, politicians, professionals, retailers and stylists.

Each of them has contributed to the life blood of the city in which they live and love. They speak of what the SGLMG means to them and how they see its role as a powerful past, present and future influence on the LGBTI+ community and beyond.
