    Geoff Friend is an Australian professional photographer based in Sydney. He worked for 30 years at the Powerhouse Museum, most recently as their Photography Manager.

    The Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras is an annual LGBTQI pride festival held in Sydney, Australia. It is one of the largest such festivals in the world, and includes a variety of events such as the Sydney Mardi Gras Parade and Party. The event grew from gay rights parades held annually since 1978, when numerous participants were arrested by New South Wales Police. The Mardi Gras Parade maintains a political flavour, with many marching groups and floats promoting LGBTQI rights, issues or themes.
