Mardi Gras kicks off with a prehistoric party at Sydney’s Australian Museum on February 19.
Jurassic Lounge: Mardi Gras will transform the city’s wildest venue into a colourful party celebrating Sydney’s vibrant queer culture. Inspired by the galleries and collections, performers, artists, scientists and comedians remix the Museum into a surprising playground for 2000 grown-ups.
Partygoers will have unique after-hours access to dinosaurs, precious gemstones, and ground-breaking exhibitions such as Garrigarrang: Sea Country that explores Indigenous connections to the sea.
They will also enjoy sample acts and speakers from this year’s Mardi Gras program, alongside red hot artists such as drag performer Carmen Geddit, Andrea Darling (and her pet python Claudia), DJ Sveta, and performers from Sydney’s favourite underground queer party, Unicorns. Also back are Jurassic Lounge staples, including the Silent Disco, Date Roulette, photo booths – and live reptiles.
