Party with Kylie for Mardi GrasIn a special Australia Day announcement, Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras and partner Destination NSW confirmed that Kylie Minogue will attend this year’s Mardi Gras Parade.

“I am coming home for Mardi Gras this year!” said Minogue. “I simply cannot wait, and it’s going to be a beautiful way to celebrate 25 years of this relationship.”

The crew behind Mardi Gras will honour Minogue during the Parade with a spectacular K25 – 25 Years of Kylie float that pays homage to her career and support of the LGBTQI community. It has been 14 years since her last performance for Mardi Gras and this year’s appearance promises to be one for the history books. SGLMG’s CEO Michael Rolik says, “There is no doubt that our community contains an enormous number of Kylie fans so we are delighted that she will be here for Mardi Gras at the start of her 25th anniversary in the music industry…there are often rumours that Kylie will be back at Mardi Gras and today we are pleased to confirm she will be here to party alongside us over the Parade weekend. We will be pulling out all the stops to show her a good time.”

George Souris, NSW Minister for Tourism, chimed in on the Kylie news, saying, “Ms. Minogue has a very special place in Australians’ hearts. She has a global audience who adore her.  Where better for her to celebrate her 25 years in entertainment than in Sydney, Australia’s global city.”
