Plebiscite A Risk To Family ValuesThis year, join Rainbow Families as they celebrate wonderful families in the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras 2017 Parade.

Mardi Gras is an opportunity to celebrate rainbow families and push for recognition. Join little babies, children, LGBTIQ parents, prospective parents, carers, families, and allies and proudly march down Oxford Street.

This year, Rainbow Families will have 2 floats. Float 1 will be sticking with the “Love Makes A Family” message while Float 2 will represent playgrounds from all over NSW with the theme of “Imagine Equality. The theme comes from the idea of children imagining equality for their families and is in line with the parade theme of equality.

Tickets, including T-shirt and props, are $35 for adults and children. All adults and children, irrespective of age, need a ticket. This will cover part of the cost of participating in the parade, hire of truck, creation of the float, music, lights, banners as well as participants T-shirts and props.

Tickets are limited and sell fast. Tickets are available here.

All those who buy tickets will be provided with a Rainbow Families Mardi Gras survival pack. This document will outline start and finish times, directions, T-shirt and prop distribution, what to wear and how to accessorise.

Get involved with the building and sewing workshop!
