Members of Australia's armed forces march in uniform for the first time in Sydney's annual Mardi Gras gay pride parade, an event which bills itself as the world's biggest night parade, on March 2, 2013. The Mardi Gras is in its 35th year and is celebrating the theme 'Generations of Love', focused on its origins as a gay rights protest march that ended with violence and arrests. Some 10,000 revellers on 115 individual floats made the journey down Oxford Street, hub of Sydney's gay and lesbian nightlife, in a vibrant show featuring drag queens, political parodies and plenty of sparkle.
