Lifesavers with Pride finished the 2021-22 summer season with gusto after a slow Covid-lockdown start. This included our photoshoot, Rainbow Beaches, rehearsals, and Mardi Gras parade entry, as well as attending Aussies.
The 2021 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras parade was held on Saturday 5 March where we were lucky the rain briefly stopped for the day. LWP were represented with 38 marchers limited due to the Covid restrictions, keen to show lifesaving as progressive, inclusive and welcoming. Again, the parade was held at the Sydney Cricket Ground due to Covid restrictions. Our song was “Pure Shores” by All Saints, and our props this year were red and yellow beach balls. We were also lucky to get an interview during the broadcast with Courtney Act on the side of the SCG.
