Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras (SGLMG) is one of the oldest continuously operating LGBTQI+ organisations in Australia. SGLMG was built on the foundations laid by early community activists who fought for LGBTQI+ rights in a time of wide-spread, institutionalised oppression and discrimination. From these origins, SGLMG has evolved to include a strong focus on celebration while maintaining a commitment to social justice for LGBTQI+ communities.
- Festival runs from 19 Feb - 7 March 2021

In 2021 those two premier conferences will be hosted online over 3 consecutive Fridays in April. Moving these important conferences online comes with new challenges, but it will enable us to use advanced conference software to provide both live events and on-demand content, networking, chat, breakout workshops, and a series of online social events every Friday afternoon to allow participants to network and reflect.
Fri 16 April | Fri 23 April | Fri 30 April
