Busker Drowns Out Anti-Gay Preacher at Sydney Mardi Gras


Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras event brought out the best and worst of the community and, in this video, both are represented.


On Saturday, a busking band noticed an anti-gay preacher ranting – as is their wont – about the dangers of homosexuality, or whatever it is they think about.

So Alex Winter and his band decided to situate themselves right next to this display of unwarranted hatred and began to play – their main focus was to drown out the man’s vitriol.

To do this, they played Girls Just Wanna Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper, changing the pronouns to include LGBT themes.

In the Youtube description, Winters says, “This is a video of myself and some friends playing against a negative preacher who was spreading anti-gay propaganda on Mardi Gras day in Pitt Street Mall. Everyone joined together to celebrate diversity and equality, eventually forcing the man to leave.”
