Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras!


What to wear to the Mardi Gras?

Most Americans heading to the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras content themselves with street clothes at the festive parade and post-parade party. And they have a great time. But it would be fun to see a few more costumes.

If this is your first Mardi Gras, you may not know what's approriate. The costume ideas you've probably been thinking about, like this one, present obvious hurdles when you have to pack that suitcase. Here are a few tips...



1. Many great costumes will easily fit in your overnight bag.



2. Your costume doesn't have to be practical.



3. Don't worry that you might embarrass yourself.



4. The skin look never goes out of style.

 Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras, official site

There's nothing in the U.S.A quite like Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras. This site is provided as a companion to Venturing Out, the gay and lesbian travel column, in hopes that we'll see some spiffier floats at Gay Pride festivities stateside (OK, San Francisco, you're doing pretty well already) -- and to encourage people to attend, and participate in, the Sydney events.
