AUSTRALIA: Cher Set To Headline Sydney Mardi Gras

The Sydney Morning Herald reports:

You better Believe it – it’s looking like superstar singer and actress Cher will headline Sydney’s 40th gay and lesbian Mardi Gras in March.

While it is understood a contract is yet to be signed, sources close to the event have told Fairfax Media the 71-year-old gay icon is almost locked in to perform at the world-renowned gay pride festival.

Organisers typically seek out big overseas acts on major anniversaries – the 30th Mardi Gras was headlined by Cyndi Lauper – and this year’s will take on extra significance given the historic legalisation of same-sex marriage just weeks ago.

      The only thing gayer than a Pride Parade with Cher is 8 guys fucking 9 guys.

  • Lazycrockett

    Nice to see her coming out of retirement for a good cause.

  • Cackalaquiano

    Do I totally lose my gay card if I admit I’m indifferent to Cher?

    • Lazycrockett

      I’ve liked her FU attitude, but her music and acting, meh.

      • Cackalaquiano

        Yes! Precisely.

    • Daveed_WOW

      No, but you’ll lose some princess points.

    • Kruhn

      I’m calling an emergency session of the Gay Council! This one needs mandatory gay reeducation and conversion therapy, stat! LOL

  • Boreal

    Saw her in Vegas once. She had injured her back and told the audience she was on pain meds. Not a great show.

    • Daveed_WOW

      I just heard the Debbie Downer music in my head.

  • GanymedeRenard

    Yes! You go, Oz! I’ve never had somebody in particular to dedicate these songs to, but these are my two favorite Cher tunes for all it’s worth:

  • Professor Barnhardt
    • Daveed_WOW

      OK. This calls for revocation of Princess Points.

  • Daveed_WOW

    When I was in second grade, the Sonny and Cher show was the hot topic of conversation on Tuesday mornings. We couldn’t wait to talk about what Cher was wearing!! And we weren’t even gay yet!

  • JT


    There’s a lovely German film on Hulu called Jonathan, about a young man caring for his dying father and learning at last that his father is gay when an old boyfriend visits. The gorgeous young actor, Jannis Niewöhner, who plays the son, gives a touching performance. He also graces us with the display of his beautiful body in several, alas, heterosexual scenes.[email protected]@._V1_.jpg[email protected]._V1_UY317_CR11,0,214,317_AL_.jpg

    And in other news, BLR has a Trump Christmas musical special.

    • Todd Allis

      It’s quite catchy.

  • Chuck in NYC

    That’s nice. Following up her earlier appearance a few years ago at the NYC Pride Pier Dance. 🙂

  • Henry Auvil

    Who is this Cher person again?

    • Silver Badger

      A nice old lady who sings.

  • Phil2u

    She looks like Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe in that “Indian” photo.

  • Bj Lincoln

    Cool! We have friends there who would love to get tickets! Even though they are all straight, they all got excited for equal marriage and called us! Funny how the world is so much smaller than it was when I was a child. National Geographic was our window to the world and naked boobs. My 5th grade teacher cut out all pictures of naked parts.
