Summary

"Melbourne's annual gay pride festival in St Kilda provides a colourful day for the people of Melbourne. After photographing the event I returned to my car for the drive back to the office to file for news conference at 4.00 pm. As I walked through the gardens I noticed a man dressed as a woman heading towards the men's toilet. With camera at the ready I fired off one frame to capture a light-hearted moment of the day. The picture appeared in full colour on page three of The Age newspaper to the delight and anger of the gay community. Photographed with a Nikon F5 camera using an 80-200mm lens on Kodak Pro. 100 ASA film."--Simon O'Dwyer.
