Sydney is widely accepted as the gay capital of Australia, with its vibrant gay scene an important part of the city. The gay and lesbian area of Sydney is centred upon Oxford Street in Darlinghurst which is host to many gay bars, pubs and nightclubs, as well as gay strip shows, sex shops and bookshops. During the day the gay area of Oxford Street and surrounding streets in Darlinghurst and Surry Hills are a great place for lunch or a coffee with friends, but by night the area becomes a bustling and exciting destination that is popular with those from both the gay and straight scenes alike. The area is within easy walking distance of central business district of Sydney and runs along Oxford Street from the south-east corner of Hyde Park to the fashionable and upmarket area of Paddington.
Sydney’s LGBT scene is world-renowned for its annual Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras, which happens once a year in February and March. The festival is hugely popular and draws in thousands of people from across Australia and overseas each year. It boasts events such as the Harbour Party in Sydney’s picturesque Botanical Gardens, overlooking Sydney Opera House; the Bondi Drag Races, a raucous collection of tongue-in-cheek beach-based sporting events on the iconic sands of the world famous Bondi Beach; and Fair Day, which sees as many as 70,000 people converge on Sydney’s Victoria Park for a day of food and drink and browsing the many stalls on offer. The main event however is the Mardi Gras Parade and Party which sees a wild and outrageous procession of LGBT party people, and floats, walk and dance its way down Oxford Street and through the city. It is definitely a spectacle worth being in town for!
