For the 2008 Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras parade, ethel yarwood
enterprises will be collaborating with the Gay & Lesbian Rights Lobby to present a parade entry in 2 parts - 58'08: Equality... Bring it On!
Inspired by the teen hit movie Bring It On!, the Gay & Lesbian Rights
Lobby will be bringing its 58'08 campaign message to life this Mardi
Gras. After winning the award for Most Creative Entry at last year's
Mardi Gras, the Lobby will be stepping up its float credentials with
a cheerleader-led float highlighting the 58 laws which discriminate against
same-sex couples and their children.
ethel yarwood enterprises will be following the Lobby's float entry with
a group of 58'08 protest marchers dressed to reflect the 58 discriminatory
laws, as highlighted by the final report of the Australian Human Rights
and Equal Opportunity Commission's Same-Sex: Same Entitlements: National
Inquiry into Discrimination Against People in Same-Sex Relationships.
This year the float promises to be satirical, energetic and send a serious
message that 58 laws which discriminate against same-sex couples and
their children must be changed by the end of 2008. Equality... Bring It On!
