We are testing our rego page for the 2019 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras now so it'll be live soon.  It's going to be huge this year.  We have plenty of surprises ahead and will announce them as we go.

First change is that we are launching our new website, and will migrate off the blogsite over the summer.  Whilst the rego page isn't live yet, have a look around the website and spread the word on LWP.  You can join the site in preparation as only people who have joined the site will be able to register.  Note you'll get the same amount of emails from that site as you do from the blogsite now.  Plus we can focus our comms so you don't get info on an event unless you have registered for it.

Anyway, I hope you have a song ready to suggest, have started back at the gym and have that environmentally friendly glitter on order.

Getting close now!

Hey, time to start your Mardi Gras planning

Just letting you know that we'll be posting the registration page soon for the Sydney event, and we have a few changes in store for this year, which we'll unveil as we go.  So if you are free on Saturday 02 March, and can come to the six rehearsals on Thursday and Sunday evenings beforehand (interstate people will need to watch the online posts) then start getting your thoughts together.

The first change is that we will be including nippers on the float this year, so if you want to bring little ones, contact us directly so that we can lock you in beforehand.  They won't need to come to rehearsals.

OK, brains in motion to pick a tune, head to the gym, cut out carbs, tan up and pre-order that (biodegradable) glitter.  It's going to be fun.
