Mardi Gras and Gay Travel – The Cardiff option.
Sydney probably has the most famousGay and Lesbian Mardi Gras,but Cardiff also has one that occurs around early September each year.I must admit,Cardiff is not a place that immediately comes to mind in terms of theGay Travelscene.
I found this out because I went to the pub across the road from where I was staying in Cardiff,called the Golden Cross – where I stumbled into a Drag Queen night by accident!I wanted to try out some of the local brew,calledBrains Beer,but I experienced so much more than that!
A picture of the Golden Cross pub is shown below.
The CardiffMardi Grastakes place within the grounds of the Cardiff Castle,located in the Cardiff City Centre.TheMardis Grasattracts 亚博app官方下载about 40,000 people per year,so that's not exactly small on anyone's terms.
Anyway at the Golden Cross pub,I met two drag queens there called Fanny and Mona.I had approached them becuase I thought they would make great interview material,and I wasn't disappointed!They didn't say no!
These two ‘ladies' made me laugh,and they were silly enough to agree to an interview,which had me in stitches.
