Adjournment – Sydney: Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras

Adjournment – Sydney: Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras

15 February 2007

Mr ALBANESE (Grayndler) (4.59 pm)—On Sunday, I will be attending Fair Day, a part of the Mardi Gras festival, and planting a heart at Victoria Park under the theme ‘All love is equal’.

The Mardi Gras festival is a celebration for the gay and lesbian community in Sydney.

It is also important to recognise that discrimination continues to occur against the gay and lesbian community in a range of areas including the recognition of their relationships.
