KNYSNA - The small Western Cape town of Knysna has been transformed into a sea of glitter and fluffy stuff this weekend, as the Pink Loerie Mardi Gras and Mr Gay World finals made it the gay hotspot.

In true LGBTI style, there was no shortage fun, drama OR colour.

The annual parade attracts hundreds from the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community.
