For Kiwis heading over to next year’s Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras after Auckland Pride, a delayed Mardi Gras schedule means there will be more time to enjoy the festival.
The 2015 festival focuses on the theme of ‘PASSION’ and the festival encourages “one and all to find your passion.” Mardi Gras ’15 will present Sydney with an array of free and ticketed events, including extravagant parties, exceptional comedy and theatre performances, premiere film screenings, insightful panel discussions, and many all-inclusive community events.
Savage said “Mardi Gras 2015 is all about passion. It’s what drives us, connects us, inspires us and makes us an unstoppable force for change. Without passion we only have apathy. Passion is what has pulled us through the dark periods, in the face of discrimination, inequality, brutality, and conflict. Passion is what has united us to come together. Passion is what Mardi Gras is all about.”
