Follow ShPRIDE to experience Sydney Mardi Gras

Invited by Mardi Gras Film Festival, 2 organizers of ShPRIDE will be joining more members of the Asia-Pacific Queer Film Festival Alliance in Sydney, Australia for the Mardi Gras Film Festival, and also participating in the Mardi Gras Parade on 4-Mar, next Saturday. Before the exciting parade, besides the film festival, there are also diverse events for the community, including visual and performing arts, fair day, Rainbow Run, comedy shows, musicals and dances, panels, and parties!


The Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade captivates the nation and reverberates around the world. More than 12,000 fabulous people will unite for a glittering explosion of pride in the heart of Sydney’s gay and lesbian district.

Born from a single night of political protest in 1978, the true Mardi Gras spirit lives on 39 years later, bringing the city to a standstill with hundreds and thousands lining the streets in support of equality, pride and a dazzling spectacle of sparkles and self-expression.

Mardi Gras 2017 season theme is Creating Equality. By its very definition, EQUALITY ensures everyone is treated fairly and equally – and no-one is discriminated against for their sexuality, sex, gender identity, race, beliefs, age or abilities.

Besides capturing and sharing the city being filled with rainbow colors, follow us on Weibo, Facebook and Instagram, as we will update you with events, experiences, new friends, glitter moments and explosions of pride! Follow us and interact with us! Lucky followers will get souvenirs from our trip!
