MASS CELEBRATION EXPECTED AT LIVE BROADCAST OF POSTAL SURVEY RESULTS ANNOUNCEMENT

 

COUPLES WHO SPARKED CHANGE IN MARRIAGE ACT IN 2004 TO ADDRESS CROWD

 

This Wednesday thousands of eagerly awaiting LGBTI people and their allies are expected to take the day off work and school to come together to witness the result of the postal survey on same-sex marriage.

 

Equal Love will be hosting a mass gathering outside the State Library of Victoria to witness a live broadcast of the results. There will be people of all ages standing alongside one another in what most are expecting to be a historic win.

 

Addressing the crowd will be Sarah and Jac Tomlins as well as Jason and Adrian Tuazon McCheyne, who sparked the controversial amendment to the marriage act in 2004, by attempting to get their Canadian marriages recognised in Australia. The couples will reflect on the past 13 years in what one can only imagine being an emotional 360 for them all if the yes result wins.

 

We are expecting a rainbow display of emotion, cake, prominent speakers, and dancing.

In the unlikely outcome of a ‘no’ majority, we will hold a protest march through the streets of Melbourne.

A resounding ‘YES’ outcome on Wednesday will be a such a momentous juncture in the campaign for marriage equality. What a fabulous mandate it gives the government to legislate for our equal rights. Whilst we expect a victory in the most expensive opinion poll to date, unfortunately, the fight isn’t over and the pressure on the government needs to continue after November 15 until we see marriage equality a reality.
