Sydney Mardi Gras 2011 (+ video)

US students experience spring break in Florida, straight partydudes go to Carnaval de Rio, F1 Fanatics to the Grand Prix de Monaco, religious muslims visit Mecca. Gays should at least once in a lifetime experience Sydney Mardi Gras. Thé biggest gay pride event in the world. Forget World Pride or EuroPride, SMG is the one and only leading pride.

Usually when I travel I don’t choose my destination based on its gayness. I like to taste the local gay scene, but it’s not my main motivation. For Sydney, I must admit it’s different. It’s absolutely not a coincidence I’ll be there around Mardi Gras. I will attend the Parade and I have a ticket for the Mardi Gras Beach Party and the official Sydney Mardi Gras Party after the parade. Last year saw David Guetta and Adam Lambert coming. Who will it be in ’11?

Prices are quite high for those parties, so I’ll improvise for other events. I’m in Canberra for the Harbour Party and I can’t book everything, can I?

This will all be quite a challenge for me. In my hometown Antwerp I never go out alone and I’m a failed partyflirt. But in Sydney I will have no choice but being social and courageous enough. Who knows where I’ll end up! I secretly hope to bump into Matthew Mitcham too.
