- Sydney Mardi Gras 2019: More than 300,000 revellers on the Capital
out, you’re about to start finding glitter in
the most unexpected places
than 300,000 revellers on Saturday descended onto
Sydney's iconic Oxford Street for the Gay
and Lesbian Mardi Gras parade. Participants in
colourful costumes marched to music and danced to
the beat of drums.
12,500 people in almost 200 floats were taking
part in the 41st edition of the parade, which was
centred around the theme: "fearless." In
a rare move, the New South Wales government has
relaxed the city's "lockout laws," which
restrict the sale of alcohol and entry to live
entertainment venues, for the event.
