The Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras is back at the Sydney Cricket Ground in 2022 but that’s not the only big news. In this episode we talk to CEO Albert Kruger about the return of Fair Day for vaccinated patrons.
NSW Health has provisioned exemptions which will mean full capacity across most events but there’ll be Covid plans and vaccine checks.
I ask Albert about rumours the LGBTQ+ parade is moving to the SCG for good.
In the wide-ranging interview I do my best to get clues about the big stars set to perform at the parade and party.

Lots of people will spend the coming months getting fit for March and, in the main, that’s good for us. What happens when working out isn’t working out for your mental health?
Dr Scott Griffiths is currently a researcher with the University of Melbourne. He’s is a leading expert in body image and eating disorders. Scott helps Out in Sydney understand some of the complexities of muscle dysmorphia particularly for queer men.
When does an obsession with exercise, muscle, body image, and size get out of control? Scott Griffiths gives us some clues on how to spot the problem.
If you or someone you know in Australia would like information or help about muscle dysmorphia or related conditions contact the Butterfly Foundation at www.butterfly.org.au.
