Mardi Gras 2024

Supporting our LGBTQIA+ community

We're proud to be part of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.

The University of Sydney was pleased to once again participate in the 2024 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.

Marching in the parade on Saturday March 2, this marked the ninth year that the University has participated in the festivities.

To celebrate the 2024 Mardi Gras theme ‘Our future’, the University marched with the theme ’The future is interwoven’ , reflecting our  focus on inclusion and equity. This year’s parade outifts featured the artwork Queer Sydney: A History by Jeremy William Smith, commissioned by and displayed in the University of Sydney Library.

The University was also scheduled to participate in Fair Day on Sunday February 18 with a stall at Victoria Park, but the event was sadly been cancelled as of February 14.
