Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade

Celebrating 30 Years of "Discovering & Exploring Since 1978!"

Saturday 1st March 2008

The 2008 Mardi Gras Parade marked the 30th anniversary of the protest which began it all. Special indulgences were granted to supporters of the Sydney House to
assist in the parade.

With a sterling effort the Rainbow Habit, which made it's first appearance more than ten years ago and was originally conceived by Mother Desmond Three Three With A Bloody Good Tan, made a welcome return and was expertly displayed. Our banner was also proudly borne by several supporters and members of visiting Australian Houses.

Fred's head, suitably lashed into submission, was brought out after ten years to follow the fabulous Rainbow Habit in the parade and our own webdog, proudly wore the Bicentenial Leather Habit.
