A rainbow waterfall will cascade from the Sydney Harbour Bridge on New Year’s Eve at midnight, according to Lord Mayor Clover Moore.
The event has been planned as a way to celebrate the historic year for LGBTI people around Australia.
“This New Year’s Eve, I can’t wait to see the rainbow waterfall cascade from Sydney Harbour Bridge to celebrate a historic year for Sydney’s LGBTI community,” she wrote.
“This is a fabulous way to see out 2017 – the year that four out of five Sydneysiders said a resounding Yes to marriage equality,” she told 9 News.
“The rainbow waterfall is a well-earned tribute to the Sydney 78ers who marched for gay rights 40 years ago – it’s a reminder of how far we have come and how far we have left to achieve true equality for our LGBTI community.
“It’s a wonderful way to ring in the New Year, and celebrate the 40th anniversary of Mardi Gras.”
