A YOUTUBE video of street busker Axel Winter, with the help of other buskers, at Sydney’s Pitt Street Mall drowning out a religious preacher who took to a step-ladder to verbalise his homophobic opinion hours before the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade has gone viral.
Winter, an aspiring singer, wrote the following on his Facebook page after the incident:
Thank you Sydney for taking a stand for equality.
Whether you’re homosexual or transgender or even just confused, you’re still my friend.
Bless you people, bless you. X
The song they performed was non other than Cyndi Lauper’s Girl’s Just Want To Have Fun.
