Fair Play is an LGBTIQ community initiative to help party-goers understand their legal rights and how to keep safe during the Mardi Gras Festival. Fair Play is a commitment by LGBTIQ organisations to provide accurate legal resources and education to the LGBTIQ community. Their website has lots of easy to read information about:

  • keeping safe
  • police powers
  • drug searches
  • sniffer dogs
  • complaint procedures.

Fair Play is committed to respecting human rights through the principles of harm reduction. They are interested in your safety and providing you with as much information as possible.

The Fair Players are a team of specially trained volunteers who are on site at key Mardi Gras events to share legal and safety information, monitor the operations of police and provide support to people who have been searched or questioned by police.
