Today in Brisbane hundreds of people came together for one reason: to demand marriage equality. Currently, Australia does not allow anyone to get married except heterosexual cis-people. People of other gender identities and sexual orientations are excluded under the current legislation, so they and their allies came together to rally in Queens Park to show the people of Brisbane that they would not be quiet, would not back down and would not give up until there is full marriage equality.
I unfortunately turned up late and missed all the talks, but was in time for the march itself, which I attended with a few friends.
I marched until my boots fell apart and I had to leave to buy some sneakers.
All in all I had a good time and I hope that marriage will be something for everyone who is in love and wishes to be married. You can watch a channel 7 video of the rally and join the Equal Love Brisbane group on facebook.
