It was my first mardi gras, and it was so great. We didn’t get a very good position so didn’t see all that much of the parade, but just the mood of revelry and debauchery and general looseness on the streets was so fun to be part of. The colours and cheesy camp pop music and “to equality and beyond” lasers. Swigging from a bottle of champagne in front of police, watching guys stripped down to their jocks and blatantly cruising. The beautiful boys in togas / speedos / drag. Just awesome.
But the best part of all is having this one back from Old Blighty. Look out, Sydney!
