Saturday the 1st was the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade. It was the 30th anniversary of Mardi Gras, so there was a big turnout. There were over 10,000 people in the parade and it lasted nearly three hours.
People line up early in the day to get a seat on the street. We showed up about an hour before the parade and were able to get behind the people in front, so we considered ourselves luck.
Here are many pictures from the night starting with a shot of the crowd lining Oxford St.
