People from all over the country flock to Sydney’s streets during late February early March for the stunning carnival that is Mardi Gras and the Gay Pride movement the carnival represents throughout generations.

Proudly inaugurated by me and the wonderful team of Ambush Gallery the season picked up with a beautiful and touching exposition in Bill and John’s urban gallery in the heart of Chippendale.
Hosted in Central Park Mall, that massive green building opposite UTS (A.K.A my absolute favourite creative spot) Ambush brought to the city’s youth a delicate view on transgender teens going trough their transition on finding their desired bodies.
The most interesting demographic of the attendees that launch night consisted of parents that brought their children to contemplate the beauty of genders.
A collection of Mardi Gras posters throughout the years got Sydney’s stonewall era babies nostalgic, the pop art covers and their colourful assemble showcases what gay culture does it best – to provoke.
