The Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras is famous for glitz, glitter and glamour, but it started with megaphones and violence. Malcolm met Tommy just before the first Mardi Gras in ’78, but their relationship didn’t find its feet until that fateful night when Sydney’s police took aim at the LGBTIQA+ community. The origin story of the world’s most glamorous Pride parade comes to life in this heartbreaking story of love, laughter and loss. The queer spirit cuts through with grim determination and a little glitter.
