Rainbow Radio: Joy 94.9 to broadcast Mardi Gras
The Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras will this weekend celebrate its 39th birthday with one helluva party.
Beyond being one of Australia’s biggest tourist drawcards generating an annual income of around 30 million dollars, it’s also the biggest celebration of LGBTI community and will draw a massive crowd ‘on the ground’.
But not everyone can make it to Sydney for the annual gay pride parade and will instead rely on radio and TV to capture the party.
In Melbourne, ACE Radio presenter Ti Butler has been tapped to host the Mardi Gras Parade Pre-Party on Saturday afternoon on JOY 94.9. The show will also be heard across Australia on SBS Radio.
The show kicks off from 2pm until the start of the parade coverage at 7pm. Ti promises there’ll be plenty of music and live crosses to people on the streets of Sydney.
