Queen comes out to salute Sydney’s Mardi GrasNahrain John·1 Mar 2014News·0 Comments·0 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth came out today in support of Sydney’s famous gay and lesbian festival, The International Mardi Gras. Despite a damp start to the day’s festivities, the liner sported a 126-metre multi-coloured banner saying ” Happy Mardi Gras”. Sydneysiders were encouraged to turn out to see what was described by Cunard as a “Queen of the Harbour” arrival. News helicopters hovered over the ship as she passed the Costa Deliziosa, which was forced from the Ocean Terminal onto a harbour mooring by the majestic arrival. As the Queen approached the Sydney Harbour bridge, well known Mardi Gras performer Vanity Faire sang on the top deck perched in a two metre high stiletto.
