Sydney, Australia, turned an actual, whole bridge gay to ring in the New Year.
In celebration of the city’s 40th annual Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras and the country’s historic same-sex marriage ruling, the Australian capital city’s fireworks display included rainbow pyrotechnics and a rainbow waterfall spouting from the Sydney Harbor Bridge.
