Very sad news has come through to us today. Mardi Gras 78er Ron Austin passed away this morning. Back in 1978, it was Ron who said "why don't we have a street party?"

    Oh wow, I had no idea Sydney had a Mardi Gras parade. Mr. Austin sounds like he was a really great guy, I'm sorry to hear of the community's loss.

      It's the biggest LGBT event in Australia. People come from all across the country and from around the world. It's an amazing legacy for Mr Austin and the other 78ers to have left us.

        That's amazing! If I ever make it to Australia I'll have to go in February.
