READ: What’s On In March For All You Last Minute Planners

March seems to be the months of liberation, music and nudity. We’re not complaining! Here’s what you should be attending this March.

Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras

The night of all nights - Mardi Gras parade! This year’s theme ‘fearless’ will honour the LGBTQUI trail blazers as hundreds of thousands of people flock to the streets of Oxford and Flinders street to celebrate equality, strength, diversity and pride. The night consists of a diverse and exciting lineup of events, including the famous post-parade party.

The celebrations will be held at the Entertainment Quarter from 10pm and includes ten live shows, 20 DJ sets and five dance areas. The Hordern Pavilion will also be hosting a grunge/glamour event dedicated to Berlin’s nightclub scene. Whatever event you attend, this is one of our favourite events of the year and we are beyond keen to get celebrating!

DETAILS

When - Saturday, March 2nd

Where - Parade kicks off on Oxford Street from 7pm

World Naked Bike Ride

The idea of sitting on a hard bike seat, completely nude and riding around Sydney is not our idea of a great time, but then again, we probably shouldn’t knock it till we try it. So if you’re looking to broaden your...ahem...horizons, whack on a helmet, drop your dackers and straddle that bike seat.

The bike ride is a triple threat when it comes to it’s awareness message. The nudie ride is not only about body positivity, but also about environmental sustainability and raising awareness around bike safety. The whole naked part might distract drivers and in turn create an unsafe environment for bike riders…. Attendance is free so why not grab your bike, forget your clothing and burn some cals for a good cause.

DETAILS

When - Sunday, 14th March
