Equal Love calls on all supporters of marriage equality to keep up the fight for equal rights.
The next rally in Melbourne is on Saturday 24 November at 1pm at the State Library.
The cause of equal rights has never before enjoyed the level of support it does today. Poll after poll confirms that the vast majority of Australians want to see equality enshrined in law. But the shameful act of the Australian parliament last September - voting down legislation for marriage equality - shows that we still have a battle on our hands.
Convener of Equal Love Victoria, Ali Hogg, says
“It’s more important than ever that we keep the pressure on the politicians as we head towards the next federal election. We need to keep the pressure up to show we aren’t going away until we win our equal rights!”
There are still two marriage equality bills making their way through parliament - we need to show it is the supporters of equal rights, not homophobic lunatics like Corey Bernadi, who are most determined to win.
Equal Love has put a call out and expects thousands to take a stand against the ban on marriage equality. It’s vital we are as vibrant and as loud as possible in order to make our voices heard.
Equal Love encourages all supportive friends, workmates and family to attend the rally. Without solidarity, we will not win.
There will be prizes for most creative placard and most original wedding costume, as well as a flashmob performance on the day.
There will also be speakers, celebrities, performers and much, much more.
