Tell us your most memorable Mardi
What will you do to surprise your
Outgames in DARWIN, 10-16 May:
Sports, Culture and Human Rights.
For what reason would you go?
Leesa Michelle Mardi Gras 2012 – it
was my first time marching in the
parade, I felt so free and proud to
Bec Leigh We’re going to have a
totally lame romantic skype date.
She is going to be in Japan for our
first Valentine’s. But yeah, we’ll
make it hilarious and cute our way.
Like we do everything.
Madeleine Gallagher To watch
derby and talk about human rights!
Michelle Hall I would love to be
able to just go along and cheer.
But I’m pretty loud so I’m sure
they’ll hear me from here anyway.
Dy Jones To watch the fun!
Rachel Williams Who needs a
reason? Just goooo.
Jade Ramone Eat ice cream and
watch Bridget Jones while weep-
Bernadette Waplington Take my
GF out for a candlelit dinner and
have a few drinks at home.
Rachel Piratelady No surprises.
Shouldn’t have to do it just one
day of the year...Valentine’s is
Elle Conroy I think the surprise for
some is realising that you have a
High Maintenance Queenie I will
let you know this year as it is the
first time we’re going!!! Soooo
Janet Pope I was a parade official in
the late 90’s for 5 years. I have been
kissed by more random politicians
than I care to remember! I remem-
ber one year where my fence line
had a large group of American men
who had come over for the parade.
Of the 10-12 there, 4 were named
Randy. True story. 2 years running,
my fence had the same group of
girls - 1 was a Southern drinker,
like me, but we weren’t allowed to
have alcoholic drinks on route. Well
this girl would open a new can of
Southern, offer me a mouthful, then
drink the rest. She never offered
me the can after she had drunk,
only when it was new. I never saw
Mardi Gras from the other side of
Inspire Change & Embrace Happi-
ness Counselling Standing right at
the end of the parade and experi-
encing the atmosphere and people
walking past and hugging me and
kissing me on the cheek...that was
the point that absolutely changed
my thoughts of gay people from
being immature and negative to
being 100% positive and accept-
ing...it was one of the best nights of
my life! It was also really awesome
to see all of the different work-
places supporting their employees.
I wish acceptance was as easy as
everyone having the opportunity to
attend, and then embrace the love
the way I did...
Bird A Bird 2007! My partner and
I marched together as Gay and
Lesbian liaison officers for the NSW
Police Force. Top night.
