Text:Drag star Courtney Act has been photographed at the city’s most iconic locations in a campaign to welcome the world to Sydney for Mardi Gras 2015. The RuPaul’s Drag Race top three finalist is serving as the event’s global ambassador and says Sydney is the best summer city in the world. “And I’m not just saying that because it’s my home town!” she says. “Mardi Gras is the ultimate time to experience all it has to offer. From the festival, the Parade, the parties and events, to Sydney’s buzzing culture, fantastic bars and restaurants, beautiful beaches…what’s not to love!” She says the event is the world’s most spectacular celebration of pride and diversity. “Earlier in the year I made a flying visit home to shoot the 2015 Mardi Gras tourism campaign, which was incredible. I never imagined I’d be photographed on top of Sydney Opera House, let alone in full drag! I can’t wait to see these images start to appear around the world. Sydney Mardi Gras 2015 runs from 20 February to 8 March 2015. Some key events will go on sale from October to November with the full programme launched in early December.
