Courtney Act continues her political activism in this short history spot for MTV Australia, about the famous gay and lesbian Mardi Gras in Sydney. She gives a little insight into how it all began in 1978, as a fight for the right to love, ending up in a clash between protesters and the police. Those arrested had their names printed in The Sydney Morning Herald, ultimately outing them to everyone. In more recent years, the parade has gone mainstream, being broadcast on national television; but, the fight continues…to gain marriage equality, trans rights, gender equality and more.
