Thousands ignored the pouring rain and marched on Saturday night to celebrate Mardi Gras with Kylie Minogue’s K25 float
Daily Telegraph reports:
QUEEN of pop and gay icon Kylie Minogue showed her support for same-sex marriage as she wowed the crowds at this year’s Sydney Mardi Gras.
She slammed Australia?s current ruling saying: ?Of course I believe that it should be legalised. I always say, love is love is love.”
Minogue, who was named guest of honour for last night?s 35th annual gay, lesbian and transgender parade, added: ?Hopefully whatever hurdles or obstacles are in the way can soon be banished, that would be great.?
Some wore sparkly costumes, some wore uniforms and others wore pretty much nothing at all, but all those who took part in this year?s gay and lesbian Mardi Gras were united by one message – equality.
Marriage equality and gay rights were the themes on Sydney?s Oxford Street on Saturday night as thousands marched, danced and cartwheeled through the street to celebrate diversity.
Pouring rain and cloudy skies did not stop parade-goers from coming out to celebrate the gay and lesbian community?s night of nights.
??The rain just added to the excitement and cooled us down in there,?? parade marcher Jed, who donned a T-shirt reading ?Born this gay?, told AAP.
Umbrellas replaced sequins and glitter as the most common accessory as thousands lined Oxford Street to get a glimpse of the glamour.
