'Urban Tribalwear Peter Tully' poster

Made
The Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras (until 1989 the Sydney Gay Mardi Gras) originated in June 1978 as a political demonstration march advocating the civil rights of homosexual people in Australia. The Mardi Gras has since become an annual calendar of events in which the Mardi Gras parade (February/March) and the Sleaze Ball (September/October) are the headline events. The Mardi Gras parade is one of Sydney's most spectacular annual festivals with state, national and international appeal.
