Walking on the wild side.

The "Dykes on bikes" always open the parade

The “Dykes on bikes” always open the parade


I was in Sydney on the weekend, so I went along to watch the annual Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade, along with a hundred thousand or so other people ! Despite the inclement weather the streets were packed to watch this extravaganza of feathers, sequins, leather …..and not much else !

Photographically speaking, it was a “target rich environment”, and I shot off just over 400 photos, although I’ve culled that down to a mere 90 so far. I’ll post some of them here, but most of the more “risque” ones will go into my pbase gallery over the next day or two. http://www.pbase.com/mike_n/gay_and_lesbian_mardi_gras_2013
