Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras (SGLMG) members have voted to cancel the Mardi Gras Police Accord and abolish the controversial decency inspections. At the December 9 SGLMG Annual General Meeting (AGM), an amended motion six, which removed the sentence calling for police abolition, but cancelled the Police Accord, was approved. In 2018, Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras (SGLMG) and the NSW Police signed an Accord that allows police to conduct public decency inspections of all participants prior to the start of the annual pride parade.
