Summary
  • Mardi Gras ’95 Feted by temptation By Esther and Esmé "Mis-ty coloured memories, of the way we were..." Barbra Streisand Rain, wilted feathers, running make-up, freezing bodies and hours of wakefulness and fun follow the big parade. Another Mardi Gras party and wasn't it the best one for years! Plenty of pavilions providing something for everyone. Lesbian numbers were way up and straight numbers way down a mostly lout-free zone at the Show-off-grounds. The boys had their own space, the girls had their own space and the heterosexuals partied on with their queer friends one night in Utopia. Star-spotting in the dyke-only Secret Garden at Festhaus included clapping eyes on Dee Smart, the 'is she or isn't she' star of Home &​ Away, and Lisa Schouw, lead singer from Girl Overboard. Neighbours' Scott Michaelson and his girlfriend were refused drinks, while up at the Guest Bar one entrepreneurial dyke spent an awful lot of time tickling a not-soloose loose lesbian's funny bone. Samantha Leith finally got to perform at a Mardi Gras party doing a spectacular version of the Eurythmics' Sweet Dreams. Unfortunately her show ran at the same time as Boy George's Bow Down Mister. And weren't we all ready to see a homo perform at a homo party? It's just a shame to have since seen Boy George act like an obnoxious bastard towards Mardi Gras and the gay and lesbian community in the straight press. Maude Boat and the Aboriginal Islander Dance Company bungee jumped their way through Can you feel it? Mitzi Mackintosh did Get back to love, and Bjork's Big Time Sensuality featured an intergalatic visitation from Elisa Hall all spectacular shows. Special congratulations must go to the party director Lou Glover, parade director Bev Lange, Mardi Gras Inc., and all the volunteers for a party that was just 'like the good old days'.
