Every year the Sydney Gay & lesbian Mardi Gras parade transforms the streets of sydney into a colourful and noisy spectacle, celebrating the pride, diversity and creativity of gay men and lesbians.
Absolutely Mardi Gras focuses on the extraordinary costumes made for Mardi Gras and showcases some of the most prominent designers.
