A VIDEO clip produced by Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras as a tribute to Madonna has attracted almost 200,000 views on Facebook in under 24 hours.

Over 200 vogueing volunteers of all ages took part in the tribute filmed in Sydney’s Darling Harbour precinct, performing to several Madonna classics like Vogue, Material Girl, and Express Yourself. [Scroll down to watch video]

The Queen of Pop video was created in recognition and respect of Madonna’s support to the LGBTI community throughout her career.

“Madonna has helped define a generation during an era that has seen huge global changes, and diversity has always been core to her message of self-expression and love,” Mardi Gras wrote in its Facebook post.

“We hope that our tribute goes someway to reflect the sheer joy, infinite love and deep respect that our diverse LGBTQI communities have for a unique performer who continues to empower, celebrate, and support us.”

Madonna is currently performing around Australia with her Rebel Heart Tour, finishing up in Sydney on March 19 and 20 this weekend.
