All around Australia, rallies are happening in support of marriage equality. Born out of passion for equality and frustration with our government for choosing to address the issue with an ultra-expensive plebiscite, these rallies have attracted record crowds around the country - Melbourne’s rally in August was the largest rally for LGBTQI+ rights our country has ever seen!
On September 16th it’s our turn, Adelaide, and I’m convinced we can keep this amazing momentum going. Grab your pals and head over to Parliament House for what will surely be a fervent rally in the name of what is right. Thousands are expected to show up, and organisers have confirmed that the rally will go ahead regardless of the High Court’s decision, regarding the future of the plebiscite. Either way, the rally is important – either to support our LGBTQI+ community with the ‘yes’ postal vote, or else to urge our government to resolve the matter with a vote in Parliament. This September, let’s get out and make sure our government hears our voices.
Speakers on the day include Ian Hunter of the Labor Party, Joe Szakacs of SA Unions, Kelly Vincent of the Dignity Party, and Senator Sarah-Hanson Young of The Greens.
