Can’t Make It To Sydney Mardi Gras? You Can Watch It On The Web!

In years past, it took a passport, a 20-hour flight and a big chunk of change to enjoy Sydney Mardi Gras. Now all you need is a decent Internet connection. MardiGrasTV.org.au, which went live yesterday, offers hours of content  from this year’s celebration, including the legendary Sydney Mardi Gras Parade on March 4.

Produced by Australian mobile-phone company Optus, the site is offering footage from Fair Day and Harbour Party, as well as  behind-the-scenes shots and a one-hour video of parade highlights, which can be seen from 7.30pm on Sunday.

That’s 3:30am EST on Sunday morning, so you better get your beauty sleep!

    The first Sydney Mardi Gras was the best one. It had true meaning.

    The current Sydney Mardi Gras is a parade of exposed flesh and fetishes. Narcissism at its worst, commercialism at its most garish.

    Notice the lack of the words ‘Gay’ and ‘Lesbian’ from the parade. Such great work for visibility and the fight for our rights!
