NIDA students have been successful in applying for a space in the iconic Sydney Mardi Gras Parade 2019.
‘We want to march up Oxford Street with pride and show that we are inclusive, that everyone is loved, and that there is a place in this school for everyone no matter what our differences are. This is not just about being LGBTQIA+, this is about showing that all diversities are needed at this school and also at the helm of our creative industry.
As a team of 6 students from the National Institute of Dramatic Arts (NIDA), Sydney, we are aiming to raise funds on behalf of our university student body to create NIDA’s inaugural Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras float/display. We hope to march along Oxford Street with pride and joy, a symbol of inclusiveness, equity and love.
