Uber and G Flip have teamed up to offer free rides for punters heading to Sydney’s Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras party this weekend.

The free service Uber is offering is an Uber Pool – often a shared lift – from 12 pm to 10 pm today. Sharing an Uber with G Flip can happen through a competition run by Uber. If you’re keen, you can register your interest in sharing a lift with the Be Your Man singer here.

As Buzzfeed notes, each Uber Pool ride shared with G Flip this Mardi Gras Saturday will find Uber making donations to Minus18, the country’s national charity that aims to improve the lives of young LGBTQIA+ people.

In a statement, G Flip said they’re “stoked” to be home for “one of my favourite days of the year”.

On being back in Sydney for Mardi Gras this weekend, they added, “I’m going to be hopping in a few Uber Pool rides on the day of the parade, so stay safe, book an Uber, and hopefully, we can hang out for a cheeky little ride! Happy Mardi Gras, beautiful humans!”

American singer Adam Lambert is headlining this year’s Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras with support from the iconic Ultra Naté, known for her hit 1997 track Free.
