I had the opportunity to photograph Inner West Council’s Mardi Gras celebrations. Inner West Council proudly supports the diversity of the local LGBTIQ Community. Each year Council recognises and celebrates the month of Mardi Gras through their fabulous Mardi Gras Reception, Feel the Love and also opens the month of Mardi Gras by raising Rainbow Flags and banners on Balmain Town Hall, Ashfield Civic Centre and Newtown Neighbourhood Centre.
Feel the Love Inner West 2017, honors the theme – ‘Get Connected’ which aims to unite all of the LGBTIQ Communities from the former Council areas of Leichhardt, Marrickville and Ashfield.
It was a great evening and early morning rainbow flag raising with so many inspiring speakers, services and local members of our community.
Happy Mardi Gras!
