Jess, 23, assistant manager, SA

Jess took a photo of her answers:

If you could rule the world what would be the first thing you would change? The first thing I would change would be to legalize gay marriageable to give equal rights to all of the gay community. I strongly believe that everyone is the same, no matter their sexual preference so we should all be treated equal.

How would your friends describe you? Loyal, determined, always up for a goodtime, unconventional and the life of the party.

Would you do anything for love? Yes. I am a very passionate person and when I'm in love there wouldn't be anything I wouldn't do for that one special girl.

You're writing your own wedding vows - what would you say? To my darling Miranda Kerr, you have made me the happiest girl alive when you divorced Orlando, I promise to love you and bubs forever, to infinity and beyond.

What qualities do you think our BOY should embody? A passion for gay rights, someone who really stands up for what they believe in and never gives up.

Lisa, NSW

If you could rule the world what is the first thing you would change? I’d give everyone equal rights, such as allowing same-sex couple to marry and to have the same rights as everybody else. I feel like that this is the biggest issue we all face on a day-to-day basis. No discrimination for the world equals a world where we can all live in peace.



How would your friends describe yourself? Well, my best friend Emily describes me as: "Amazing, caring, selfless, fiercely loyal, patient. One time when I hit a low point and wanted to give up on my  studies, Lisa cancelled all her plans for the day and took me on an adventure to the art gallery and the botanical gardens where she had me forget all my troubles. She reminded me why I was there and showed me things weren't as bad as they seemed. Lisa is the friend who would do anything for me and anyone else she cares about. She’s dedicated to whatever she sets her mind to, and is amazingly artistic. She's creative and inspires me to do things I'd never think I could do. And whomever she ends up with, should consider themselves one of the most blessed people in the world, as time spent with Lisa is time you appreciate forever."



Would you do anything for love? Yes, I would do anything that is conductive in a monogamous and healthy relationship. If I were Altus I would pull stars from the sky. If I were Poseidon I would dry up streams and use the water to grow flowers where ever she may be so she can always walk in beauty...but alas I am mortal, so short of the miraculous, sky's the limit.



You’re writing your own wedding vows – what would they say? Past my mind, beyond my heart, I love you from my soul. And that’s the space where only you and I, together we grow old.



What qualities do you think our BOY should embody? They should defy the cliché. Lesbians are more than just short hair and butch clothing. Each female has her own sense of identity, and I think the BOY should represent that. They need to be honest, down to earth and yet still know how to have a good time and really make the most of life, even if life throws them a curved ball. They know how to deal with it and know when they have to be strong and also know when it's all right to be vulnerable.





Cat or dog? Gosh thats a hard one. But it would have to be a cat, as I have one and well Willow...he is my little man.



Bath or shower? Shower cause when you are under it it's like all your worries are being washed away.



Beach or Pool? The beach is the place to be for me. I spend too long at the pool for work so whenever I can, I get to the beach.

Allison, 26, business development manager, NSW

If you could rule the world what is the first thing you would change? 
I would organize the redistribution of global food production so that people aren’t dying of starvation in developing countries. Shame! “The richest 20% of people in the world consume nearly half the meat and fish in the world, but the poorest 20% consume just 5%." (FAO, 2000) For more click here.

How would your friends describe you? 
Outgoing, ambitious, amorous, fun, adventurous, sometimes a little bossy!


Would you do anything for love? 
I would make my girl my partner in all things, sharing the good times and bad, both equal halves of one whole. Anything she wants.. she gets!  Including all my love and attention, always. 


You’re writing your own wedding vows – what would they say?
 Hmm that’s a tough one… I think it would depend on the person I was marrying. I would want them to be specific to her, her needs and wants of the marriage and what marriage would mean to us as a couple. Not something I would want to presume at this point in my life.


What qualities do you think our BOY should embody? 
The ability to be a great spokesperson/ representative of all the lesbians in Australia. (Including Femmes!) Namely be: outgoing, sexy, confident, friendly and smart. Able to get along with people from all walks of life and have integrity and morals. 


Cat or dog? Must love dogs!


Bath or shower? Spa bath. A nice big one with bubbles and champagne, and preferably views of some tropical paradise… 


Beach or Pool? Pool. Resort. Enough said really.

Victoria, 22, Area Manager, NSW

If you could rule the world what is the first thing you would change? LGBTI all around the world would have the same rights as heterosexual people!



How would your friends describe you? Honest, loyal, ambitious, hardworking, reliable, caring, hot/trendy? You decide for yourself :)



Would you do anything for love? I would do anything to make you mine. I would go to the ends of the earth for you, I would lock you down and call you mine, I would make you the priority in my life. I would make you my life

.

You’re writing your own wedding vows – what would they say? 
Let’s think of the future

Ishtar, NSW

Sara, NSW

If you could rule the world what is the first thing you would change? 
Well, if someone were to come up to me and announce my reigning over the whole world...certainly the first thing I would HAVE to change is...my underwear.



How would your friends describe you? 
Hopefully with long extravagant sentences pertaining to my exuberant personality which harmonizes perfectly with my outrageous hair. 



Would you do anything for love? 
I'm sure I'd do a lot of things but anything doesn't sound particularly smart. I'd hate to find myself jumping off a bridge for love.



You’re writing your own wedding vows – what would they say? 
I can't imagine being married unless Julia Stiles proposed...Julia Stiles, when I see you my heart runs for miles. First time I saw you on telly, I got butterflies in my belly. I was in bliss every time I thought of you as my Miss. Everything is fine, now that I'm yours and you mine.



What qualities do you think our BOY should embody? 
For starters, I think they should definitely NOT be a boy. Red hair, glasses, dad joke a plenty...oh wait that's me! Ok, seriously, charisma, confidence and passion. 



Cat or dog? Oh I don't want to pick! Perhaps a hybrid of both.



Bath or shower? Shower, wastes less water

.

Beach or Pool? Beach! Fresh, cool, free and wild 'NUF SAID

Tracey, 31, Disability Support Professional, NSW

If you could rule the world, what is the first thing you would change? I would remove all legislative discrimination, hence restore equality for all human beings. There should not be any segregation or disempowerment  regardless of sexuality, religion, social class, financial status, health, gender.

How would your friends describe you? Those who know me well, they would describe me as an outgoing, fun and spontaneous person.  I am effervescent with a  tenacity and enthusiasm for life that can be alluring. I love music on all different levels, am energetic and creative in all that I do. However for those people in whom I trust and are close to my heart, they would also say that I am a relatively sensitive and vulnerable person with a tender heart just looking to belong as are all human beings.

Would you do anything for love? No I would not do anything for love. However being ‘in love’ is a different story. I would do whatever it takes to be with that person and to build a future with that person. I believe that being ‘in love’ inspires my own sense of self and experiences of the world.

Wedding vows: From the first time I looked into your eyes I felt that the world around me disappeared.  I watch you sleeping, I hear you breathing, I see your smile and I know I have found where I belong. Being with you is what I believe must be ‘ecstasy’ as you arouse my emotions, my heart, my mind and my body in every way. Your existence validates my own existence. It is because of you that I know I will reach the skies and it is because of you that I want to. I feel sheer and utter honour to be standing here before you and giving every part of me to you.

What qualities do you think our BOY should embody?
Strong convictions
Courageous, confident and proud of the woman she is
Insightful into her own sense of self
Respectful to all others that she associates with
Sensitive and empathic to the needs of others
Ability to relate to all walks of life
Fun loving, enthusiastic and dynamic

Cat or Dog? Cat.

Bath or shower? Shower.

Beach or pool? Beach.

Elli, 25, Restaurant Manager, NSW

How my friends describe me? Luckily my friends came to visit me at the cafe today so i got them to throw some thoughts my way: vivacious, friendly, saucy, successful, caring, a nanna (I tend to fall sleep early), great cook, awesome, spunky, bright, lots of fun.



What would you do for love? 
I wouldn't change who I am, but I would give them my broccoli and I love broccoli.    



Wedding vows: 
Today on our wedding day there are a few things darling I wish to say, luckily we both are happy and gay. So come on bitch don't linger put that ring on my finger and lets go on our sweet little holiday, where I should have my way with you in the hay.



Dog or Cat?
 Loving the puss.



Beach or pool? 
Beach. Rough, wet and wild. 



Shower or Bath? 
Long baths with the one I love. 



What should our BOY embody? 
She needs to be proud to be gay to start with, confident within herself, prepared to promote loudly and proudly same-sex relationships in a positive way to influence people's perceptions. A fearless woman.



What would i change in the world? 
I’d make it all a little more equal!  Every country as well off as one another, every person would have access to food, water, education, a safe warm home. (The little things we can take for granted.) Close the gap between rich and poor. I want every human and animal to feel safe also.
