The Atheist Foundation of Australia Inc is very happy to announce there will be a public viewing of its slogan in the Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras parade on Saturday 7 March.
One of the entrants, the Sydney Queer Atheists have agreed to run the AFA slogan on their “buses” proudly sponsored by the Atheist Foundation.
President of the AFA, David Nicholls said. “We are delighted to support the Mardi Gras. The parade is equally pleased in promoting freedom of expression, which we have been denied by overly staid bus advertising companies. Planet-wide attention will focus on the bus slogans in a fun-filled atmosphere.
“Bus advertising companies might reconsider their hardline stance on seeing that the world didn’t stop because of a few innocent but important words placed in the public arena. Australia stands almost alone in rejection of these messages.”
Happy Mardi Gras!
