SBS reveal commentary team for Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras

Each year SBS’s commentary team for the Sydney Gay and Lesbian  Mardi get’s a little bit bigger. A few years ago it was just Tom Ballard and Patrick Abboud, last year Magda Szubanski signed on and in 2016 Faustina Agolley will join the team.

Agolley, who came out to fans last year, said she was thrilled to be invited to attend her first Mardi Gras celebration.

“I’m thrilled to be part of SBS’s coverage of this year’s Mardi Gras. It’ll be my first time attending and co-hosting this world-renowned event. I can’t wait to be there and celebrate inclusion for all,” Agolley said.

The theme of this years parade is ‘Momentum’ to stand up and be counted, to turn your passion into purpose and become unstoppable.

SBS is set to stream the entire parade online through it’s website and then play a highlights package on TV the following night.

Watch the parade live at SBS on Saturday March 5th, or watch the highlights show on Sunday March 6th at 8:30pm.
