Breaking news: Taronga Zoo animals join Mardi Gras
You wouldn’t believe what goes on after dark at Sydney’s picturesque Taronga Zoo. This has just come across The Punch’s desk and we couldn’t resist sharing it with you.
Australian Marriage Equality and New Mardi Gras have co-oped the critters at Taronga Zoo into next year’s Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.
For $250 a head “guests will enjoy exclusive after-hours access to the Zoo, a private viewing of the famous bird show, meet some of the Zoo’s most exotic residents and learn about the animals and their homosexual activities.”
The press release, under the title: “Taronga Animals Come Out to Support Marriage Equality for Mardi Gras” says you can buy tickets from Moshtix from today.
“We are delighted to back this event which we believe will be popular with locals and visitors alike,” said NMG CEO Anna McInerney. “Many people in our surveys have told us they would like a dining experience as part of the Mardi Gras programme. This event will deliver upon that request,and also give a boost to the marriage equality cause.”
We’re not sure who’s giving the guided tour with tips on the animals homosexual activities, but we’re sure it’s not the same talk given to the kiddies during the day.
A spokeswoman for Taronga Zoo said it had no part in the event and the organisers had hired the function centre privately.
On a more serious note, The Punch has covered the issue of Gay Marriage and inequality in some depth. You can see all the posts here.
