It's been 2 years since the last Sydney Mardi Gras Fair Day and boy have we all missed it! Every year, during the Mardi Gras season (Feb-March), everyone braves the heat to haul ass to Victoria Park and indulge in a day of live music, stalls, dog shows, drag shows and general fabulousness. It's a chance for the community to come together - including families, children and pets - and celebrate us in all our glory :D
After 2 years of suspending this long standing tradition in the midst of COVID, Fair Day finally returned and I had the privilege of running my first stall there! Meeting my customers face-to-face for the first time was a huge leap from selling my stock into the faceless abyss of the web. Hearing my customers' stories has been the most rewarding part of starting my little business. Being able to chat to customers live is the pinnacle. Knowing even just one card has made a difference to someone's life and helped them feel less alone when coming out, transitioning or simply existing has always been my aim. Hearing and seeing this happen in front of my eyes made my day.
So let's remember to stay united, shine together and enjoy a happy Mardi Gras for 2022! <3
