If you find yourself in Australia during the month of March, you can't miss Sydney's Mardi Gras. They host one of the largest LGBT Pride parades in the world and it's a truly unique experience. Make sure to get there extremely early to secure a spot up against the metal barricades - this will ensure that you have a front-row spot with a perfect view and you'll have something to lean on (you will be standing for hours and hours). So many people from all over the world, insanely creative floats, dykes on bikes.... Words fail me because of the pure *awesomeness* - just check out the attached photos to see for yourself.
