Theatre critic and blogger for the Sydney main stage and independent scenes Suzy Wrong posted up photos of her wearing a dress with a huge skirt trail decorated with flags from all over the world. The Singaporean born Australian was modeling this for a photoshoot in Sydney for the Amsterdam Rainbow Dress Foundation and wore one of their dresses ahead of World Pride 2022.

Wrong wore the dress with pride in photos with the backdrop of Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. The dress is more than just an amazing sight but it is a statement. Measuring over 16 metres / 52 feet in diameter and made of 72 national flags from countries where homosexuality is punishable by law, including 12 countries where homosexual acts can result in the death penalty. The bodice of the dress is made from the city flag of the city of Amsterdam.
In Wrong’s Facebook post, she mentions that being able to model this dress “is her biggest honour”.
What an important dress which sends an important statement.
