SYDNEY - Thousands of people in lavish costumes and various states of undress danced and partied their way through Sydney's streets on Saturday, in Australia's annual Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade.
The parade - one of the world's largest and most flamboyant gay pride events - had 9,400 participants and 135 floats and featured the theme, "History of the World" - a look at gay history.
Hundreds of thousands of cheering spectators watched the procession, led this year by famed transsexual model Amanda Lepore. Her sparse attire, festooned with precision-cut crystals, left little to the imagination as she perched on an open-top Mercedes.
