The ABC have released a 2 minute video designed to promote the Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras to young viewers. The clip titled, Mardi Gras + Me, features a group of children explaining what the degenerate event means to them.
“Mardi Gras is a beautiful thing,” a young boy says. “It’s inclusive. It’s flamboyant.” A child appearing no older than six explains, “We have Mardi Gras because we’re celebrating gay and lesbian people.” While another claims, “Anyone can love who they want to, you know? Whether it’s a man or a man or a woman or a woman.”
The ABC is Australia’s national broadcaster and is taxpayer funded. If you think the highly-sexualised event is family friendly, take a moment to Google “Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras” and then hit “Images.” We were initially going to include a sampling of photos taken from the event, but decided against it as the images were too inappropriate and there was far too much to censor.
