Applauding the writers and artists whose stories have helped challenge boundaries and shift the narrative.

Every year, partygoers from all over the world converge at Sydney’s Mardi Gras in celebration of love, inclusion, diversity and equality. And with the recent Yes vote prompting the legislation of equal marriage rights, we have much to celebrate. But we can never forget that these milestones are emblematic of long and painful struggles. Throughout history it’s been the place of artists and writers to elucidate these struggles to the broader public, in doing so challenging boundaries, shifting the narrative and influencing the way we consider gender, relationships and love. Here are just some of those stories.
