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.


Please note that People with Disability Australia (PWDA) will close for the Christmas period at 12pm (AEST) on Friday 22 December 2017 and will reopen at 9am (AEST) on Tuesday 02 January 2018.
