One thought on “Sydney Mardi Gras 2012

  1. unless they do something bad to other ppl and harm other ppl that’s gonna be the time that they’re gonna rot in hell. They’re hvinag a good time here and i don’t see something wrong with gays and lesbians. And i’m one lucky straight female who have gay and lesbian friends to back me up when i’m down or when i’m okay. and i wont change them for anything. they’re precious! so to all haters, please, dont judge them right away.
