Sydney: Mardi Gras parade
A giant puppet of Russian President Vladimir Putin as “a mythological ogre with no heart”, was featured in Sydney’s annual gay and lesbian Mardi Gras parade, to protest Russia’s law on gay “propaganda”, local Australian media reported.
The Russian law prohibits vaguely-defined propaganda discussing non-traditional sexual relations with minors, but it does not make clear what constitutes disseminating the information.
An estimated 300-thousand people crammed the two-kilometre (1.4 mile) stretch to watch as dancers, singers and politicians among others paraded through the city’s Oxford Street, local media reported.
