Lesbians Aren’t Feeling The Mardi Gras Love

Lesbians Aren’t Feeling The Mardi Gras Love

Lesbians have become disconnected from the gay and lesbian Mardi Gras according to a reader survey conducted by LOTL, Australian lesbian magazine, with more than half of respondents blaming the male focussed events for their attitude.

On the question of ‘how should Mardi Gras reconnect?’ an overwhelming 72.5 per cent suggested offering a more diverse program tailored to lesbian families, weddings, mentorship and special events for the older and ageing demographic.

On the same question, 46.2 per cent suggested small and less expensive events to reach a broader demographic.

Of the 43.6 percent who were supportive of the current Mardi Gras direction Fairday was the most popular and only 10 per cent were party participants.

LOTL magazine has a circulation of 17,000 per issue and the website receives 30,000 hits per month and according to publisher Silke Bader they always receive an extremely high response to their surveys.

This year is 25th anniversary of continuous publication and the publisher recently announced that she was giving the magazine to the lesbian community and it would revert to a not for profit company structure which will enable them to increase circulation growth by distributing to Adelaide and Perth and to tap other sources of capital including crowd funding.
