I marched at the Marriage Equality rally in Sydney on 10 November, among with 30,000 people! It was the biggest LGBTQIA protest in Australian history and also the biggest rally ever in Sydney. Over three quarters of Australians participated in the voluntary postal vote on marriage rights. The Opposition and most other major parties opposed the postural vote as it is very expensive ($121 million) and unnecessary (the vote should have been held in Parliament, where it likely would’ve passed by majority conscience vote).
To paraphrase Senator Penny Wong: we didn’t want to be here, but now we are here, let’s get this done!
When you’re not the only one at your station headed to the Vote Yes Marriage Equality rally at your station.
On 7 November, voting closed for the marriage equality postage vote in Australia. Results will be out on the 15 November. Time for change!
“Surprise I’m human too.”
Put on your red shoes and dance the blues. The rally ended with a boogie!
