Do you want to march with Twenty10 in the Mardi Gras parade?
Each year Twenty10 marches in the Mardi Gras parade and we would like to invite you to join us!
This year our theme is 'Jurassic Love'. We are trying to convey the message in a fun dinosaur themed way (think dinosaur tails!) that homophobia and transphobia should have become extinct with the dinosaurs.
Each parade participant will be given a t-shirt with "Twenty10 and GLCS" printed on the back and you're invited to express how you feel about the message on the front. You can also share a part of you and express yourself through your t-shirt design and costuming. Costuming will also feature dinosaur tails.
Get Involved in Mardi Gras
This year we're holdng some creative workshops in the lead up to the Mardi Gras Parade so you can get more involved in creating our float and choreography. We're planning a series of dance workshops so you can learn some moves and work with a dance teacher to create the choreography for our float. Workshops are NOT compulsory - you are still welcome to march with us. We'll teach you the dance on the day.
