Cher to Headline Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras in 2018!

Living legend Cher is set to have a major 2018, with the release of Mamma Mia 2, costarring her bestie Meryl Streep

Not only that, but she is also rumored to headline the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras in 2018!  A contract has yet to be signed, however sources close to the event have told Fairfax Media that the gay icon is pretty much locked in to perform there in March. 

This year is extremely significant for the LGBTQ community in Australia and its supporters, given that they just legalized same-sex marriage in early December.  A gay icon of Cher's size would be that much more special for the people living there, as it would be quite the headlining performance that the entire world would want to watch.

Furthering speculation that she will be there,  an Australian Radio Network appeared to break an embargo by publishing an online story that Cher was "officially coming to town" for Mardi Gras.  That story has since been retracted.  

It also looks to be their busiest Mardi Gras yet, as sources are saying that the event is already overbooked, with about 12,000 people from 200 different groups planning to march on March 3rd.

Could we "believe" that Cher will really go down under for this historic occasion?
