ANZ Bank outed its ATM banking machines
for the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.
The 36th annual parade,
which began as a protest march to commemorate the 1969 Stonewall
Riots in New York, included 114 floats, several of which poked fun at
Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The colorful parade – now one of the
world's most celebrated and lavish gay parties – runs along
Sydney's main Oxford Street artery.
To celebrate this year's party, ANZ
turned ATMs in central Sydney into dazzling GAYTMs.
While each machine makeover has its own
personality, they're all inspired by gay and lesbian culture.
“From unicorns and drag queens to
rainbows and tattoos, each GAYTM is a riot of colour and textures to
celebrate the festival and show ANZ's support for diversity,” the
bank said in an emailed statement.
To complete the experience, the GAYTMs
dispense rainbow colored receipts. (A behind-the-scenes video of the
transformations is embedded on this page. Visit
