Change the name of Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras to include our LGBTQIA+ community

Mardi Gras is incredibly important to the LGBTQIA+ communities, but the 'Gay and Lesbian' part of the name is out dated and no longer reflects the event's values or purpose. The name doesn't reflect the diversty of the event's audience or participants anymore, and activly excludes many vulnerable groups in a way that adds to the damaging erasure that the Mardi Gras is trying to redress in the broader Australian society.
In the spirit of this years '40 Years of Evolution' theme we respectfully ask you to engage in a consulation process with the communities and change the name to better reflect the community and it's needs. Possibly just changing it to simply Mardi Gras to allow room for the ever evolving understanding of gender and sexual diversity.
