The major video will be available later this week.

Cher has already tweeted about the video saying:“What could be more fabulous than a Cher-Off. You have my blessing!! Rip it up Aussie Boys!”

This Mardi Gras, it’s every Cher for herself!

As part of the Mardi Gras comes to Darling Harbour activations, Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras commissioned Cher The Love, recreating the Cher classic ‘If I Could Turn Back Time’ onboard the HMAS Vampire, against the stunning backdrop of Darling Harbour and the Sydney skyline. The production features a troop of dancing Cher?s, lead by Vanity Faire, and supported by over one hundred volunteer Sailors.

The full video clip, (coming soon) is intended as a loving tribute to a legendary pop artist who has demonstrated passionate support for LGBTQI rights throughout her career, and also as a celebration and thanks to the many LGBTQI people who continue to serve our country as members of the Australian Navy.

Watch the video for Mardi Gras was “Let’s Have A Kiki” for the Scissor Sisters, which is now the most-viewed video on their YouTube channel.
