The official launch and celebration of Richard Hedger's book TELLING TALES - 40 Fabulous Years of Floats, Fun, Fantasy and Fortitude.
Sydney portrait photographer, Richard Hedger, has shot 40 original portraits of members of the LGBTI+ community. In parallel, Hedger has documented each individual’s personal story to tell of the ever-evolving role the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras has played in their life.
I’m featured in this book amongst political activists, actors, academics, athletes, authors, carers, chefs, comics, designers, directors, editors, entertainers, entrepreneurs, historians, journalists, lawyers, performers, playwrights, photographers, politicians, professionals, retailers and stylists.
