Description

Members of the Defence Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex Information Service (DEFGLIS) wave the DEFGLIS flag at the 2013 Mardi Gras parade. While members of DEFGLIS have been able to march in Mardi Gras since 2008, wearing DEFGLIS shirts, 2013 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. Many partners, family members and supporters of ADF personnel marching in uniform marched with the DEFGLIS contingent.
