What is the Zoo Walk about?

Our event gives the animal inmates of the zoo a chance to learn about the ways they can be cooked, and the wonderful fashion garments that can be made from them.

Our visitors learn much about our Australian animals and can watch them being entertained and educated by poetry readings (not all of which end in but the hedgehog cannot be buggered at all).

Why nuns, and why at the Zoo?

Although Centennial Park and the Botanical Gardens provide ample opportunity for observing primate mating rituals, the zoo provides more variety of animals. And we blend quite well with the aquatic avifauna.

What are you looking forward to in the Mardi Gras Festival?

The Fair Day also provides lots of opportunities, especially if it is a hot day.

What’s your favourite Mardi Gras memory?

While walking up Oxford Street I was stopped by an elderly woman offering a gift. She sprinkled me with liquid from a small bottle.

A few seconds later she started screaming, Why are you still here? Thus disproving the fundy xian claim that I am Satan, or proving that her priest sold her fake holy water.

What does Mardi Gras mean to you?

It’s an opportunity to show the homophobic governments, churches, and personalities that we reject their hatred, whilst having a lot of fun doing it.

The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence Zoo Walk will be held on Thursday 3 March from 9:45am to 11:30am. Walkers assemble at Wharf 2, Circular Quay. The tour is free but walkers need to purchase a Zoo Pass ($33/ $24/ $16.10) which covers entry, return ferry trips and transport to the zoo’s top gate. Email [email protected] for more information.
