Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras
The Star Sydney is proud to be a Major Sponsor of the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras for the third consecutive year. This year, The Star’s float has been designed to celebrate and acknowledge the history of Mardi Gras and its critical role in shaping the future. The Star will participate with close to 80 team members together with former Miss World Australia, Erin Holland, in the Mardi Gras Parade, celebrating the 4 decades of Mardi Gras history.
The Star’s LGBTQI employee action group
The Star’s dedicated employee action group for LGBTQI inclusion, Spectrum, was formed in 2014 and promotes inclusion across The Star Entertainment Group properties in Sydney, Gold Coast and Brisbane. The employee action group ensures that The Star’s policies and family benefits include same-sex employees and is inclusive of transgenders.
Saro, team member at The Star said: “I love being part of Spectrum. I have met some great people via Spectrum and I get the chance to see the changes the company is making following our input. At present we are rolling out LGBTQI Awareness Training across The Star, a program which helps explain what each letter of LGBTQI stands for and talks about the issues the LGBTQI community is facing. It is great to see my colleagues are now more aware of issues the LGBTQI community face.”
The Star is proud to celebrate its Mardi Gras pride and hosted recently Fag Tag on one of Sydney’s best rooftop bars, Sky Terrace.
