Monday is a holiday in Australia like every first Monday of October: it is Labor Day. Traditionally, the weekend before is a great festive weekend. In Sydney this is time for Big Gay Weekend, a series of celebrations and parties which will help finance next Mardi Gras Parade in March.
The Big Gay Weekend is divided into two parts: on Friday, beginning right after the office at 5PM, everyone can buy a $10 wristband (of which half is donated to Mardi Gras), which provides access to a dozen venues on Oxford Street, the gay district of Sydney.
On Saturday and Sunday, just make your choices among the many events organized in every gay and lesbian clubs in the city: men only parties, girls parties, leather, and fetish bear, trance, pop, there will be something for everyone. Among the headliners announced : Sophie Ellis Bextor and DJ Pagano. Again, a percentage of every entry is donated to Mardi Gras.
Mardi Gras 2012 will be held from February 12 to March 04, 2012, the parade will be held March 3, 2012 in the streets of Sydney.
