Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras release full festival program for 2021

Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras release full festival program for 2021
February 2, 2021

The Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Festival returns in 2021 with a glittering program of events, performances, exhibitions and community activities commencing Friday 19th February and running for two weeks until Sunday 7th March 2021.

The celebration of LGBTQI+ pride and diversity culminates with the famous Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade on Saturday 6th March at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

The 2021 Mardi Gras theme is ‘RISE’ a poignant message during the challenge and hardship that the last 12 months has presented. The theme is a call to action that now is the time to rise again through love, compassion, respect and understanding, and to work together to make the world a better place for all.

Mardi Gras Chief Executive, Albert Kruger notes “It’s no secret that the last 12 months have been difficult for communities across the globe, and it has been especially difficult for minority groups and those working in the arts and culture industries.

“So while this year’s Mardi Gras Festival may look different than in seasons past, we’re incredibly proud to deliver a line-up of events that speak to the queer experience, entertain audiences, and support our incredible LGBTQI+ creatives.
