NSW - Mardi Gras Parade - 27 Feb 2010  

Drag kings and queens, crossdressers, transsexuals, genderqueers! Transgender people of all kinds!
Friends, family, partners, supporters!

Come march with us in the Mardi Gras parade. Come on, it`s heaps of fun!

We`re using the theme `The Transsexual Empire Strikes Back` because it`s bold and pro-trans and funny - you don`t actually have to be transsexual to join us (but if you hate transsexuals then you shouldn`t be in this group). A long time ago in a country far, far away, somebody wrote a book called "The Transsexual Empire: The Making of the She-Male" that said a lot of mean and silly things that we don`t agree with.

You could come as your most glamorous self, or wear a sci-fi costume, or come in drag (or even sci-fi drag?). The important thing is that you turn up, and if you turn up looking awesome, that`s even better.

If you`re coming to the parade and you don`t live in Sydney, book your accommodation as soon as possible. Like, now. If you leave it too late, it might be hard to find a place.

On the day, meet us near the War Memorial in Hyde Park. The nearest train stations are St James and Museum. Try to get there around 4pm. If you can't find us, call me on 0404905100. If you arrive late it will be very difficult for you to find us, and if you arrive very late we will not be able to get you into the parade at all.

Please RSVP by emailing me: baglieg at gmail dot com

or else via facebook, if you`re on facebook:

It looks like we're probably going to have more than 50 people. How exciting!

We're buying toy lightsabers for everybody, and there's a fee to enter a group into the Mardi Gras parade. To cover these costs, if you can afford to spare a little cash, I'd appreciate it if you either bring $10 with you on the day, or make a small donation to A Gender Agenda through their website. (If you can't afford it we understand)
