Last year it was a Pay Per View event hosted by Joan Rivers, but this year the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade will air live on Arena, at 7:30pm on Saturday, February 27th.
No word yet on just who is hosting the broadcast, but all will be revealed soon.
There’s one night in the calendar that belongs uniquely to Australia. Every year thousands fly in from overseas to experience it … from New York stockbrokers to Tokyo office ladies. It’s a night when our biggest city is brought to a standstill. When hundreds of thousands take to the streets. Nothing can prepare you for the outrageous glitz, glamour, satire and sass of the most famous event in the global gay calendar -the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras. Now in its third decade, Mardi Gras is a massive celebration of diversity that delivers its message with humour and pizzazz. Arena’s coverage will immerse viewers in the spectacle of the parade.
