Photo Outing to the Mardi Gras

The Sydney Mardi Gras is one of the most popular festivals in Sydney celebrating the LGBTQI communities.  This includes lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, and intersex people in our community.  The festival is a full of colour and a chance for the gay community to express themselves in their own unique way. 

It is of course a perfect photo opportunity so my photo club has organized an outing. It is a bit of a rainy day but we go early to mingle with them before the parade starts.  The men and women gathered here in all their colourful costumes are more than happy to pose for photos.  I love taking portraits so I have a ball.
