Applications to be part of the 2011 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Festival are now open.

There are a number of exciting ways you can get involved. Produce your own event to be included in the festival.

Do you have an event that falls into the category of performing arts, comedy, visual arts, sport, youth, social and community events? If so, New Mardi Gras would love you to apply to be part of Festival 2011.

NMG is also looking for entrants to take part in season events such as literary day Queer Thinking, the Mardi Gras Gallery, and performers and shows for the Festival Bar.

They are also looking for proposals for official recovery parties, or sporting events to add to the Team Sydney sports line-up.
