I don’t know why Sydney is as popular as it is. Many people say that Sydney should become our new capital city…Except for the fact, that it SUCKS!
As a REALLY good example, when Australia voted in “YES” for marriage equality. NSW, where we have the Mardi Gras, only JUST scrapped in with Yes. They were actually the state that voted the lowest “Yes” vote. I forgave them, because at LEAST they managed to just squeeze the “Yes” in -.- Sydney also has the biggest bunch of white conservative elites out of the entirety of Australia.
Sydney, where they have the Mardi Gras is had the biggest voices against “Yes”. My state is the “State of Churches” and WE had a bigger majority for Yes, than NSW did.
Because they have largest group of Conservative elites. These elite have systemically been shutting down and shoving away anything “out of the ordinary” in Sydney.
My narcissistic ex-best friend lives in Sydney, and she could not SHUT UP with how Sydney is just better than everywhere else. Which is probably a good reason why I dislike Sydney too. One time I went over there for her birthday. She had not bought a new red top for the occasion. The day of her party, she decided to finally go and look for one I asked “Why didn’t you get on already?” Her reply “Sydney’s MUCH better than Adelaide, I’ll be able to find one, if not two, so easily”. She didn’t and sulked the whole night, because she had wanted to wear something special -.-
Having a brother in Melbourne, I know how true this article is. Sydneyer’s think they are literally “the stuff” because they live in Sydney…and don’t they act like it! It’s not like New York, where people are actually good and pretty welcoming. Sydneyer’s are more like “I live in Sydney, I’m better than you”. -.-
Go to Sydney for the attractions, but travel literally anywhere else in Australia for the true warmth of Australia.
…When you just find out that Peter Capaldi is coming to Melbourne, but you can’t really afford to fly over…Well you can, but you’ll have no money left…And it’s the week before your birthday…This is my literal reaction right now…Well in my head…
So I hear that overseas in America today, possibly yesterday, is the first day of Pride Month. I’ve been trying to find out if Australia had a specific month for Pride, because June is the beginning of Winter here. We don’t have a lot of parades, because the weather is just bad, but we still do “celebrate” Pride month during June.
The first Mardi Gras in Australia was held on 24 June 1978 at 10 pm as a night-time celebration following a morning protest march and commemoration of the Stonewall Riots More than 500 people moved down Oxford St, calling for an end to discrimination against homosexuals in employment and housing, an end to police harassment and the repeal of all anti-homosexual laws. They marched in honour of those after the Stonewall (link is too an Australia site regarding Stonewall) riots in 1969.
Now, I have a particular topic I would like to talk about quickly with you all my Pride that I have for my brother. My brother is probably the prettiest Drag Queen that ever has Drag Queened…Not that I’m completely biased or anything. He does do a lot of other Queens costumes and they are fabulous and you can catch him at:
Vau d’vile Drag Cabaret Restaurant located in Fitzroy, Melbourne!
What is your favorite comfort snack food?
Definitely Nacho Cheese Dorito chips! Summer or Winter, they are my favourite!
If you had to spend one weekend alone in a single store but could remove nothing, which store would you pick? (except food or beverage)
Oh wow! I can’t remove anything? Maybe like a toy store then, so I could play with all the things but I wouldn’t really have a place to put them. So I could have play and then leave…Possibly leaving someone else to clean up the mess.
What was the largest city you have been to? What is the one thing you remember most?
That would have to be between Arizona and Melbourne. They are both completely different but they are both different ways. Melbourne’s is mostly city and buildings (which are beautiful) but Arizona is mainly big due to their landscape.
Finish this sentence: It has recently come to my attention that …. People these days appear to be a lot more “self-involved” then I remember them being. There is a lot more “I am right, you are wrong, no I will not discuss it”.
Well I got back from my trip last night so I thought that I would write just a little bit about it. Also I have to cheer myself up because the busy season for where I work starts for the next month and in the run up to it, I’ve once again been reminded how customers can be the customer service area worst enemy! =D
It was fantastic! The freedom that Melbourne offers people is something definitely not seen in Adelaide. You can pretty much get on any form of public transport and you’ll get somewhere really quickly. In Adelaide you can be travelling somewhere that should take you about 10 minutes and it will an hour, sometime more if the bus is not on time (which regularly happens).
Plus when there are just SO many shows and plays and just so many things that you can do. It was just incredible, I didn’t even mind the blistering cold. I want to go back there as soon as possible and stay WAY longer next time, I am already planning my next trip.
I am heading interstate to visit my baby brother, whose been there for a couple of years and I have yet to visit him. So if you don’t hear from this weekend, you shall know why =D We are seeing the Broadway show “The Lion King” and he bought the tickets!
Have a great weekend everyone! Pretty much by the time you read this, I will be in Melbourne =D
