The Mardi Gras parade is on tonight. The thing is, at the parade here the floats are surrounded by a contingent of marchers who do choreographed routines. It's all very visually stunning, but my friend Matthew is marching and he's been rehearsing all week.
He comes home each night exhausted after being lambasted by a militant lesbian who has choreographed nothing short of a production number from Flashdance. Apparently, she's got little patience for his lack of formal dance training. In front of all the other dancers she'll use her bullhorn to scream at him. "I said step LEFT! No. Your other LEFT!"
The lesbian has even put the choreography onto youtube so he can practice privately at home. The humiliation has really whipped him into shape.
Yeah. Sydney's Mardi Gras is no joke. It's unreal. Listen to the roster of fagnets who are here:
and Kathy Griffin....who flew down on a "Pink Flight" with drag queen flight attendants. Air New Zealand even wrapped a pink boa around the jumbo jet and put big pink eyelashes on it!
Tickets have already sold out for the all-night party. Cyndi is rumoured to do a surprise set around 4 am, and Olivia Newton-John is performing around 8. How do you spell X-A-N-A-D-U?!
Oh, and Bam Bam just arrived yesterday so all is well in the world.
