HDY supports Mardi Gras

HDY showed its support of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras in style on Saturday 5 March 2017.

HDY employees marched variously with the Australian Human Rights Commission (AHRC), Pride in Sport and Wear it Purple (a student-led, not-for-profit group aimed at supporting and empowering LGBTIQ youth).

Although Mardi Gras spirits were high and unlikely to be dampened come what may, the rain held off to ensure a fun and positive experience for those involved, and an important demonstration of support for the LGBTIQ community.

"Marching in Mardi Gras this year was a great privilege and a wonderful celebration of our LGBTI community. Thank you to HDY for supporting those of us who marched and the HDYPride Committee generally. I hope the contingent of marchers continues to grow in future years!" Skye Webb, HDY Lawyer and Mardi Gras participant 2017.
