Cher Just Hung Out With Her Drag Clones at Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras

On the evening of March 3, Sydney's 40th Annual Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras parade was visited by a much welcomed presence: the one, the only, Cher! Wearing an orange wig, the music icon belted Strong Enough and Believe after the traditional parade literally stopped in its tracks to cheer for her arrival. And, just in case Cher wasn't yet feeling the love, an army of Cher doppelgangers arrived to back her up and make it one of the rowdiest Mardi Gras ever!

To say fans were excited about her arrival is a bit of an understatement:

Even Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull was amped for some Cher!

Turnbull described the event as a "wonderful part of Sydney." Bill Shorten, the federal opposition leader, was also in attendance as part of the Rainbow Labor float!

Cher has long been beloved by many in the LGBTQ community, and even won a GLAAD media award in 1999!

When she arrived, everything stopped. And I mean EVERYTHING.

​Followed by throngs of fans (many of whom bore a striking resemblance to the pop queen herself), Cher made her way to the media pit, where she delivered a message to the parade:

I love that everybody is having such a good time and there's no feeling of any kind of anger, there's no negativity and that's what I like most...All the people with everything hanging out, and fabulous girls with their slap on and big hair and no clothes – I love it.

Her procession was one heck of a sight...

Of course, the only sight more interesting than Cher seemed to be the crowds of people who looked just like Cher.

Cher herself got to sit back and enjoy one of her concerts, perhaps for the first time!

At the end of the night, aren't we all Cher?

Over 300,000 people crowded onto Oxford Street for the massive parade. Yes, by the sound of it, most of them were dressed as Cher.

As this was the first major LGBTQ parade since gay marriage was legalized in Australia (in 2017), the parade organizers pulled out all the stops! 200 floats and organizations drifted down the parade route, including a group of 250 people who were part of the original Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, 40 years ago.

It was the kind of night you half-remember forever.

Even Cher seemed to have a great time!

It just goes to show - when we choose to love, the world loves us back.

Some jobs will just give you night terrors forever!

TW: There are a lot of horrible crimes disclosed here. Violent.

Prison is a horrifying place. It is brimming with society's worse. And the people who work and patrol those prisons are living in fear on the daily. Now not everyone is pure evil but plenty are, and those who keep us safe from these people lay their loves down, probably with not enough pay. Imagine spending day in and day out with murderers and lunatics? No thanks.

Hold my beer!

We all know Murphy's Law is real. And never, NEVER say... "So what next?" That is just calling on the spirits of evil to mess with you. Life is a struggle and sadly some moments are met with sorrow then met with hardship and then misery. It's a wonder we all get out alive..... Oh. Wait.

Warning: This is adult subject matter. Escorting is an arduous job. And it is a job. Maybe not one we'd all love to do but it's work none the less, especially when you have to mess with someone you may not find the most "aesthetically appealing." The workers in the trade have an endless well of stories to tell us. And you know we're dying to hear. Our questions on this topic are bottomless.
