‘Urban Tribalwear Peter Tully’ poster

Made by McDiarmid, David in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

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.
