The Sydney pride parade is now just over a month away, and we are busy making preparations for the trip. Chad will be arriving in Sydney a week before the parade in hopes of photographing some side stories to go along with the march. The Mardi Gras website is great for finding additional activities that are part of the pride festival. There’s a huge range of events including ‘Queer Thinking’ discussion sessions, musical/theater/and cabaret performances, Fair Day with 70,000 people hanging out for a day at the park, and the huge Mardi Gras Gay and Lesbian parade, followed by Harbour Day – a large outdoor party. This year, the artist Spencer Tunick will also be in Sydney working on a large scale art piece called “The Base” – Tunick is famous for large scale photographs where he asks thousands of nude individuals to participate.
