In 1978 when the push to decriminalize homosexuality in Sydney has stalled, a group of activists decide they must make one final attempt to celebrate who they are. Led by a former union boss, they get a police permit and spread the word. On a freezing winter's night, they cloak themselves in fancy dress, join hands, and parade down Oxford street. But they have no idea that angry police lie in wait, and the courage they find that night will finally mobilize the nation. We have Stonewall. Australia has Mardi Gras. And this is how it began.
