Cher Stops the Show at Australia's Mardi Gras Parade reports:

Sydney has shimmered with pride and glitter as about 300,000 people celebrate 40 years since the first Mardi Gras parade and marked the first since same-sex marriage became legal in Australia.

Confetti, glitter and rainbow flags lined Oxford Street for Saturday's 40th-anniversary parade with festivities high as the LGBTIQ community celebrated their night of nights.

Skimpy outfits, budgy smugglers, streamers, feathers and flags brightened the famous route as crowds cheered on.

But it was international pop superstar Cher who brought the parade to a standstill.

Her songs ‘Turn Back Time’ and ‘Strong Enough’ blared from the Qantas float which featured Cher imitators and dozens of marchers in flamboyant costumes holding large purple letters which spelt her name. The singer then joined the float and mingled with fans, hugging them and posing for photos, before walking part of the rainbow strip in the parade.
