HAPPY MARDI GRAS!
HAPPY MARDI GRAS everyone! Yes, Sydney's Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras Festival kicked off yesterday with two and a half weeks of fun, flirting, festivities and FABULOUSNESS! Lady Gaga, Whitney Houston, John Waters and George Michael are all here to paint the town pink! My first event is Tuesday's Short Story Awards Night which I was honored to help judge and will be presenting and reading on the night—there were so many amazing and inspiring stories from our GLBT community from all over Australia it was VERY difficult to choose a winner! All will be revealed on Tuesday night! God I love this time of year! The Gay Film Festival is on, as well as concerts, dance parties, forums, fairs...and SO many wonderful tourists shopping and strolling and sipping coffee and wine up and down Oxford St! (I find Americans are so damn sexy—I don't think that's any secret given my books!!)
Stay tuned on reports of the big parade next Saturday Feb 27. Till then, HAPPY MARDI GRAS!!! XX
