Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras 2018 festival season noted by Randwick Greens Mayor Lindsay Shurey – 23rd February 2018

Greens Mayor Lindsay Shurey has locally observed the start of the Sydney Mardi Gras festival by raising the rainbow flag outside the Randwick City Council administrative building.

Last year there was division amongst Randwick Councillors when the new Mayor had to battle hard to get official Councillor support for the YES vote in the marriage equality survey. But yesterday all political differences were put aside when she was was joined by local Greens, independent, Liberal and Labour politicians for the local flag raising.
