Tiwi Island SisterGirls hit Sydney for Mardi Gras

The Sister Girls will march in Mardi Gras, representing their transgender and indigenous communities

The Tiwi Islands are home to the largest concentration of transgender people in an Indigenous community: they call themselves the SisterGirls.

This year, for the second time, a contingent of the SisterGirls will fly to Sydney to march in Mardi Gras.

As ever, the glitz and glamour of the parade is a celebration but also a reminder that more remains to be done.
