Television host and model Jesinta Franklin also celebrated Sydney Mardi Gras in style!

Pictured with two mates, the former Miss Universe Australia winner took a moment to share a touching message to the younger LGBTQ neighborhood.

“My hope is that parades like Mardi Gras continue to bring awareness and acceptance to these that have to have it the most 🌈 And to that tiny boy or girl or any one who has ever faced adversity, been bullied or taunted for your sexuality or how you determine, Know this who you are matters, you are sufficient, you are loved and it is going to be ok.”
