    I just returned from Sydney and yes, it was awesome. In fact, what was even more interesting than the parade was the crowd. They were so lively and some dressed up.

    It was also amazing to see the streets cleaned up and by the next morning, the buses and cars were running as usual.

    Any of RJs attended? What did you think?

    Gosh even though I live in Melbourne. I did not see one bit of it, and this is the first thing I've heard about too.

    But then this parade started when we did not have any rights, and the first one ended in violence. But life has moved on and this is not the case anymore, down here in Oz.

    But during this time, I was fighting for our rights in melbourne, and endured police raids and harrasment. Now the melbourne police force marches in the Melbourne Pride Parade. Things have moved on, and forward down here, and for me the fight is over.

    I have been to Oz numerous times - at first loved Sydney and was not too keen on Melbourne - now I am completely into Melbourne. Great culture - really a wonderful city. I was at Mardis Gras last year in SYD and found it way too crowded and poorly managed.

    Hey Fella's, I skipped the parade and went straight to the party which was pretty average.. I've worn footy shorts for years and every second dude had em on.. But the majority of them had shaved chicken legs.. icon_cry.gif which is not much too look at.. I headed out on Sunday night as well to Extra Dirty which was great there we're some hot looking masculine fella's there.. Sydney is fun if you know where to find the blokes.. !!! Cheers
