There were some familiar faces in amidst the crowds at Saturday's inaugural mardi gras in Wagga.
A group of former Junee High school students, dubbed the 'Girls of 77' took part in the procession down Baylis Street.
Behind their brightly coloured banners walked notable locals including Leasa Toll.
Ms Toll's daughter, India-Rose, also took part in the parade, marching alongside the official event volunteers.
Under the Wagga Family Pride banner walked another Junee local, Ben Lester.
Holly Conroy organised Wagga's first-ever Mardi Gras to celebrate the queer community.
"I feel great, but obviously I am a little bit exhausted and I haven't had a lot of sleep over the past two weeks," she said.
"The response from the public was amazing.
"Everyone is just raving about how good and friendly it was and there were no incidents of violence."
Ms Conroy said on the day she was walking down Baylis Street to let people know the parade was starting soon.

"At first, I had a bit of a look around and I couldn't see a whole a lot of people," she said.
"By the time I was back in the marshalling area, so within 10 or 15 minutes it had gone from quiet to absolutely packed.
"It was a sea of people, it was so surreal."
