Mardi Gras Fair Day

Read in Parliament on 23 March 2017:

"I draw to the attention of the House the fantastic efforts of the Mardi Gras team who coordinated another successful community Fair Day. The fair was held this year in Camperdown Memorial Rest Park, in Newtown. There were more than 220 stalls, hundreds of performers and a crowd of around 70,000—many more if we include the four-legged doggy friends who also attended. It was great to catch up with so many champions of our LGBTIQ communities on the day.

I give a shout-out to Australian Marriage Equality, the Mardi Gras 78ers, the Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby, Positive Life NSW, Out for Australia, the Gender Centre and Rainbow Families. I offer my congratulations to the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras staff, including chief executive Terese Casu, the Volunteer Fair Day Working Group and the many volunteers who helped out across the day.
