Mardi Gras ’13

There is one weekend of the year in old Sydney town that I particularly love and that my friends the annual lesbian gay bisexual transgender queer and intersex extravaganza otherwise known as Mardi Gras.
I think the best thing about Mardi Gras apart from the awesome parties and anything goes attitude is the chance to dress up (or down) in whatever you want as long as the statement you’re making, is big, bold and fabulous.


The look I was initially going for was Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman, unfortunately the red jacket Lady B suggested I wear couldn’t be found in the dingy depths of the dirthouse basement and I wasn’t about to go treading around down there. So I ended up wearing Queen L’s washed out denim vest, my mothers vintage lace leotard, some tiny tiny shorts and my sky high Mimco boots- for a small amount of time I was also allowed to parade around in Lady B’s fabulous faux fur coat which resulted in me nearly sweating my dirty blonde wig off.


Lady B captured this shot of my blonde bob which was originally Farrah Fawcett style until TM tamed it with some poultry scissors I was still hoping to look like Julia Roberts from the neck up unfortunately I ended up looking a little more like Bob Irwin (the son of Australian icon Steve)…


Regardless of my controversial wig, we decided to pop a large bottle of Moet and drink our way into the night.


Dips, biccies and strawberries to line our stomachs.
Lady B made a statement with her Katy Perry inspired outfit, Queen L was going for the Madonna look with her pointy boobies, however she also made an incredibly convincing dominatrix.
Lady B’s candy necklace ended up coming in very handy, every gay man and their handbag had a nibble.
Unfortunately this is the only picture I captured of the parade…or of the sign pointing to the parade, but trust me it was spectacular and if you don’t believe me look here:
The night was a blur of air kisses, gyrating bodies and awful pop tunes. I met a sexy lady by the name of Nico D who had a massive following and a better body than any female i’d ever seen. We shared a flask of Grey Goose while complimenting each other on our faux blonde locks. Speaking of locks it was only a matter of time before my wig ended up down my pants, as well as the pants of Theodore, Harrison and Thomas- everyone lovessss a good pube show.
I woke up in a sea of empty bottles, lingerie and glitter, the events of last night painting a cheeky little smile across my face. If you’re ever in Sydney around this time I highly recommend checking out the Mardi Gras…its the largest most flamboyant parade in all the land.
