A Mardi Gras tale of woe…in poem.

With all the wisdom of a paranoid person, I listened to the naysayers.

 Nay nay the rain will fall yet,

 and all the revellers wet. 

So took to my bed did I. 

And not a drop came from the sky.

 I did indeed remain dry and bored,

 while the party goers with laughter roared.

 Woe to those whose worry kill, 

fun and frolic,  glee and joy.

 And so I remain even still

a sober but sad and lonely boy.

Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Fair Day

I was reluctant to go to this yesterday, as when I awoke there were thunderstorms and heavy rain battering my roof. I turned over and went back to sleep, but then was summonsed by a number of friends who were there, so I got out of bed and went for a couple of hours. The fair day is a day of celebration for the gay community in Sydney. There are over 250 stalls set up to cater for the needs of any kind of fetish, health need, community group and so on, and even a special area this year called Doggywood for your favorite pooch.IMG_6235

I was lucky to meet the stars of the new YouTube TV show called Subject to Change… you can tell by the photo, I wasnt really that excited to meet the lad. LOL.IMG_6215

Sydney weather turned out to be hot and steamy, just like some of the guys that were there. Anyway, enjoy some of the photos.IMG_6212IMG_6216IMG_6223IMG_6225IMG_6227IMG_6232IMG_6239

A record number of people attended and participated in this years annual Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade. It was certainly spectacular. People from all walks of life marched to show support for equality for all. Many political issues were represented, along with sporting codes, businesses, church groups, and gay support issue groups too. It was a fabulous night, as the pictures will show.
