Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras is one of the oldest continuously operating LGBTQI+ organisations in Australia. Mardi Gras was built on the foundations laid by early community activists who fought for LGBTQI+ rights in a time of widespread, institutionalised oppression and discrimination.

From these origins, Mardi Gras has evolved to include a strong focus on celebration while maintaining a commitment to social justice for LGBTQI+ communities. Our vision is to be a global leader in the promotion of diversity, inclusion, equity and social justice through culture, creativity and partnerships.
