  1. Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras 2020 was a milestone broadcast for the event on SBS as it was the first time it had been broadcast live on free-to-air TV. There were some teething problems, understandable for the new initiative of the parade being broadcast live on free-to-air TV, such as floats being missed during ad breaks and of course they have to balance the commercial interests, sponsors and event partners, but it paved the way for future live Mardi Gras broadcasts and brought more attention to the event with more people watching and talking about it.
