And Mardi Gras is not publicly funded either... and you are dead wrong about what goes on there... Perhaps you should do just a little research before you start spouting off like you know what you are talking about! IT'S A BIG HETERO PARTY! Like I said before, Ignorance cubed!

Perhaps I should have been more specific. The Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras is an annual Gay Pride parade. It is one of the biggest such parades in the world! It has NOTHING to do with heterosexuality, not by a long shot. It is mainly to do with promoting Gay Rights, encouraging cross-dressing and flouting public displays of sexuality.
I know my "ignorance" seems so high that it burns, but your naivety does the same to my cerebral cortex...

We were talking about THE MARDI GRAS, type it in google and what comes up? New Orleans Mardi Gras, which mostly has nothing to do with the gay community. What's wrong with gay rights? they shouldn't even be called that, there shoundn't have to be rights fought for for a specific group, everyone should be able to do everything equally. And can you source where you claim any organization is encouraging cross-dressing? I agree on the public displays on sexuality, than isn't a gay issue though, that's an individual issue, like some individual hetero people display there sexuality in public, so do asians, hispanics, blacks, whites, polka-dotted, etc. you get the picture, you can't lump these issues into one group.
