Australia is a great nation welcoming diverse people across the global for last 3 centuries.


We all embrace our heritage of diversity which we use to position ourselves on the world stage. Due to outdated colonial & other laws around the world, thousands of men, women, and transgender communities have been subjected to extrajudicial killing, tortures’, and rape.


Australia was one of the pioneers and champions to talk about human rights and equal rights irrespective of gender, colour, race, religion, sexuality, or any other form of diversity ever since colonialism came to an end few decades ago.


Unfortunately, there is still a stigma and ignorance about diversity which results in suicides', rapes and killings across the world including Australia. We must make a HUGE difference, HUGE awareness to stop this in our lands.


To do that, we should recognize our diversity and celebrate the diversity as One Proud Nation to lead the world by role modelling.


We should make One day in our calendar dedicated to celebrating this diversity which is Mardi Gras Friday in NSW NSW bringing closer to half a Billion Australian Dollars $$$ in revenue to Australia.


We should declare Mardi Gras Friday as a public holiday to recognize, accommodate, create awareness about diversity, tolerance and multi culturalism !
