The Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Festival, brings together a dazzling assortment of events ranging from sports, theatrical performances, spectacular parties and of course our world famous parade. On February 21st 2016, for the first time Merlin Entertainments strutted our stuff at Fair Day with the one and only RuPaul. The crowd ‘worked it’ with selfies and hugs all around. If you missed her at Fair Day, don’t be alarmed she is currently getting her hair done for this weekend’s festivities, but will be back after the all the glitz and glam of Mardi Gras.
This weekend, Saturday March 5th, for the first time ever Merlin Entertainments (Australia and New Zealand) will be participating in the parade. Our float is proudly supporting two charities close to our hearts, the first being our very own Merlin’s Magic Wand that supports seriously ill, disabled and disadvantage children, by bringing a little piece of the magic to them. The second charity that we are supporting is Positive Kids Camp Goodtime, which is a unique establishment and the only camp of its kind in Australia. This camp caters to children and families living with HIV Aids and provides workshops, life skills, medical advice as well as support in communicating with others, which reduces the sense of isolation. RuPaul will take centre stage on the float, alongside the wax figures of other influential lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender supporters Ricky Martin and Lady Gaga. RuPaul will don her appropriately sparkly floor-length silver dress on the two and a half metre high float.
We are so proud to raise money for such amazing causes and show our support to the LGBT Community. Merlin Entertainments which will be proudly sporting the theme, ‘You Love Who You Love’.
Happy Mardi Gras Everyone! May it be filled with love, rainbows and glitter.
