Nick Aldrich - AccorHotels Foat

Yeah, yeah, we get it. We know it’s not a competition…but let’s face it, some definitely reined supreme in this year’s Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade, so we’re stretching out their 15 minutes of fame, and highlighting our 2019 float-faves! Let’s check out the true queens of Mardi Gras 2019!

AccorHotels FEARLESSLY killin’ it!

What do you get when you combine a bubble bath boy, a gorgeous cabaret gal and a literal (drag) queen? Well, you get one of the most sensational floats that we’ve ever seen! It’s a HUGE #MardiYass from us, on the hotel group’s fabulous porter’s trolley inspired float!

Poof Doof, you’ve done it again!

We’re not going to claim that we 100% understand what’s happening with this one, but we are 100% going to claim that we LOVE it!

Broken Heel, gonna break some hearts!

Could this be anymore fabulous?! We’re not sure what was bigger, the heel or the absolute MOOD.

Qantas you hot thang!

There were no delays for the arrival of yet another absolutely FABULOUS float by the flying kangaroo…but we’re guessing quite a bit of head…wind…on this flight!

Drag Queens of Sydney Mardi Gras

This queen…the one with serious balls!

Literal royalty. After all, what would Mardi Gras be without the fabulous drag queens?

Bin Chickens

The ‘Trashy Birds’

If this isn’t the best parade concept that we’ve ever heard, we don’t know what is. The Street Roller Hockey Chicks Club did this Mardi Gras, dressed as a bunch of Bin Chickens. Why, you ask? Well, because at the end of the day, they’re a group of self-proclaimed ‘trashy birds’.

…And the GORGEOUS crowd, of course!

Because you beautiful humans are what make the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras the most fabulous pride event in the world!

There you have it, some of our absolute faves. Now if you can excuse us, we’re going to go away and cry over the fact that it’s now all over for 2019.

See ya’ next year, Mardi Gras!
