Oh How Times Have Changed

When a few hundred people marched up Oxford Street Sydney for the first Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras in the late 70s, a few dozen coppers stormed into them and started bundling screaming protesters away in Paddy wagons.
Now the cops march in the parade along with representatives from all walks of life.

This weekend sees a range of parties on the Golden Mile to support  the Lifesavers With Pride -the gay and straight  bronzed Aussies that are on every beach this summer protecting beach goers.

The Mouth to Mouth party at the Underground Bar of The Oxford Hotel stars DJs Dan Murphy, Alex Taylor and Jimmy Dee.

Doors open at 9pm, and don’t miss the night’s special show starring drag diva Joyce Maynge and the sexy lifesaving crew themselves.
$10 donations at the door support Lifesavers with Pride.
See you there, and remember to swim between the flags this summer – where the lifesavers can see you!

Here are the Lifesavers With Pride marching in the 2010 Mardi Gras earlier this year :
