Big Stars For Mardi Gras

The Shuttle can reveal the top acts who will be performing at this years Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras in Sydney on Saturday March 3rd: Kylie Mingoue and US drag star Ru Paul.

And Kylie, gay icon that she is, will have her own float in the parade from where she will wave to the crowd.

Kylie has been a long time supporter of the Mardi Gras and always supported her gay fans.

Despite being a major tourist attraction for NSW with both State and Federal governments providing grants with an estimated tourism surge in spending in Sydney of over $20M each year, the Mardi Gras committee are always struggling to make ends meet.

With Kylie on board and providing her services for free, she should be a major draw card and help boost finances. Also expected to put in an appearance as a guest will be George Michael, now recovered from his bout of pneumonia. Michael has a concert scheduled in the Hunter Valley and has booked the same luxurious apartment in Potts Point where he lived for 4 months in 2010
Ru Paul recently announced she may stand for this year's US presidential elections. First black and gay president. Why not !
