Sydney Marriage Equality Rally A Raging, Gay Success

And here are the photos to prove it.


Published:

Yesterday’s Sydney rally for marriage equality was a phenomenal thing to be a part of. With over 30, 000 attending, it was the largest LGBTQI+ rights rally in Australia’s history, and the message was clear from every single person there: we are ready to get this done.

 

There were rainbow families left right and centre (how cute are kids with equality placards?), same-sex couples, dykes, femmes, trans people, friends, allies, mums, dads, family members, and so many more. Speeches were given by our beloved Tanya Plibersek, our not so beloved Bill Shorten, and other gorgeous, passionate LGBTQI activists.

 

To give you a taste of the rally if you couldn’t make it, or to give you a happy moment of remembering if you were there, we’ve rounded up some of the best signs, pictures, and equality pets from the day:

Humans weren’t the only supporters at today’s #YesForEquality rally. Many four-legged friends turned up at Sydney’s town hall, showing their support for a yes vote for same-sex marriage. The #SydneySaysYes rally was the largest demonstration in favour of marriage equality the country has ever seen, with organisers saying more than 30,000 people attended. Forms for the same-sex marriage postal survey will be distributed on Tuesday with the question: "Should the law be changed to allow same-sex couples to marry?". Voters will then have the option to tick a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ box. A result is expected on 15 November, followed by a vote in parliament on a private member's bill if there is a majority "yes" result. #MarriageEquality @amequality #loveislove #lovewins #loveislove#lovewins #voteyes #EqualityCampaign#australianmarriageequality#marriageequalityaustralia#marriageequalityforall #noh8 #lgbt #lgbti#lgbtqi #lgbtiq #marriageequalityau #equal#equallove #equalitynow #equalrights#equality #equality4all #equalityforall#voteyes #sayidodownunder#untilweallbelong #samesexmarriage #dogs #cats #animalsforequality Photo: @farnorthanimal
