“Walking through the crowds at this year’s Sydney Mardi Gras brought me back to my uni days when, as a student of urban geography, I’d studied the history of the Sydney Mardi Gras in great length and detail. Having photographed the yes vote announcement at Prince Alfred Park last year, I couldn’t help but be overjoyed by how the event has evolved from a protest against (what was then) some very real discrimination and violence, to a joyous celebration of acceptance, inclusion and love. The diversity of the crowd across all ages, genders, and races was unlike anything I’d seen before.

I don’t remember what this couple was looking at, but their sartorial co-ordination caught my eye, and I quickly took this snap before they had the chance to notice.”
