Townsville man, Tyson Campbell (27) says he’s in a bit of a pickle this weekend, with his annual pilgrimage to Oxford street for the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras clashing with the North Queensland Cowboys round 1 match against the Canberra Raiders.
While initially hoping to be able to attend both the Mardi Gras and the football match on the same night, Tyson says he was distraught to find out that the Cowboys were playing Canberra at home.
“Just my luck” he says.
“Just about every second match they play is in Sydney”
While Tyson says that he is a Cowboys fan first and a gay man second, he had already booked the flights to attend the iconic equality parade.
“Had I known earlier I would I have given the Mardi Gras a miss. But my rig is looking pretty good and I booked these flights months before the draw came out”.
“Hopefully there’s a pub playing the match in Oxford street. I’ve loaded up on JT as first try scorer”
“Hopefully they won’t mind me bringing my 2 x 3 metres silk angel wings into the bar with me. But then again, I don’t give a shit if they care or not. It’s my night”
“Up the mighty cows”
