Portrait of Air Commodore (Air Cdre) Tracy Smart, RAAF. Air Cdre Smart led the inaugural uniformed Australian Defence Force (ADF) march in the Sydney Mardi Gras parade in her role as Parade Commander. The 2013 Mardi Gras parade was the first time Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex ADF personnel were allowed to march in uniform, openly representing the ADF. In all, 120 members of the ADF, from Army, Navy and Air Force marched in uniform at this parade. They were supported by members of the Defence Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex Information Service (DEFGLIS). This portrait supports Air Cdre Smart's oral history interview, related to her participation in the ADF march in Mardi Gras 2013.
