30 Years Of Pride Down Under
- Organisers of Sydney’s Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras say tonight’s event will be the biggest ever, with 10,000 people taking part in the parade.
- The determination to stamp out homophobic hate crimes was led by Sydney couple Craig Gee and Shane Brennen, who were bashed while walking hand-in-hand in Darlinghurst three months ago.
- The “78ers”, the original marchers who staged Sydney’s inaugural Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras 30 years ago, drew a rapturous cheer as they paused in central Oxford Street this evening.
If you can be what you feel, you are truly free.
