Sydney’s Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras has lots to celebrate this year - the iconic parade is turning 40, same-sex marriage laws passed recently and Cher is joining the party! For People with Disability Australia (PWDA), the Mardi Gras is also a time to recognise that people with disability aren’t all heterosexual and, like everyone, have a right to sexual expression and inclusion.  Papazian 160305 3999

This year, we are excited to have Daniel Monks, an award-winning actor, filmmaker and dancer with disability as our Ambassador. We asked Daniel a few questions about Mardi Gras and the importance of inclusion. Click here to read the interview.
