Traffic will come to a standstill in both directions as registered revellers flow from North Sydney to the Domain in ten-minute increments starting from 7:00am to 9:40am.

The mammoth march for equality also celebrates the 45th anniversary of Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, the 50th anniversary of the first Australian Gay Pride Week, and the fifth anniversary of marriage equality in Australia.

Participants will leave North Sydney in ten minute increments starting at 7am.
