We had so much fun putting our show together for the 2018 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade
, in it's 40th year where we got to pay tribute to Our History!
Producing this was a massive team effort. We couldn't have done it without the time, energy, passion and commitment of our 80 cast members and 15 behind-the-scenes crew, parade organisers, financial supporters, suppliers and individuals who went above-and-beyond to help us out. To all, we sincerely say, thank you!
Colours of Our Community was a proud recipient of the Google Mardi Gras Parade Grant for 2018
. The $2,000 we were given went to make our costumes so much more special - a fitting tribute to Mardi Gras Lifetime Achievement Award winner, Ron Muncaster.
