A BITE OUT OF OUR PINK WORLD www.pinkinourlives.com
Singer and Icon Cher has made a surprise appearance in the crowd at Sydney’s Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras ahead of her scheduled performance.
Sydney has shimmered with pride and glitter as about 300,000 people celebrate 40 years since the first Mardi Gras parade and marked the first since same-sex marriage became legal in Australia. Confetti, glitter and rainbow flags lined Oxford Street for Saturday’s 40th-anniversary parade with festivities high as the LGBTIQ community celebrated their night of nights. Skimpy outfits, shirtless hunks, drag queens, feathers and flags brightened the famous route as crowds cheered on.
The American pop sensation and gay icon has flown in as the headline act at the official party. Cher, who wore bright orange hair and a low-cut black top with a silver-embroided jacket, was swamped by security, drag queens and performers as she stood on Oxford St among thousands of spectators watching the floats pass by around 8.30pm.
Her songs ‘Turn Back Time’ and ‘Strong Enough’ blared from the Qantas float which featured Cher imitators and dozens of marchers in flamboyant costumes holding large purple letters which spelt her name. The singer then joined the float and mingled with fans, hugging them and posing for photos, before walking part of the rainbow strip in the parade. We love Cher and Sydney’s Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras.
