Last year The Sword attended Sydney Mardi Gras and sent you a few grumpy dispatches. This year we’re sitting it out, and we’re relying on others for a few glimpses of this end-of-summer shitshow for Southern Hemisphere homos.
One of the shirtless muscle queens in the crowd grabbed some shaky video of Sam Sparro’s grand entrance to the Harbour Party, featuring a team of dancers in vests and hats descending the stairs with him to the tune of “Black and Gold.” Someone else grabbed some video of some un-stellar Aussie drag queens performing outside a bar on Oxford Street.
