The 2020 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras parade was held on Saturday 29 February. LWP were represented with 105 marchers, for the first time ever with members from all states across Australia, keen to show lifesaving as progressive, inclusive and welcoming. We were also joined this year by the SLSNSW CEO and the SLSNSW President, plus staff from SLSNSW and SLSA. This year we were selected as the principal float and our song was “One Kiss” by Dua Lipa was performed in front of the artist in Taylor Square. Our props this year were our sequined red and yellow semaphore flags plus six lifesaver towers, each a colour of the rainbow.
