For the 6 weeks leading up to the Gladstone Marriage Equality Rally in November, I drove everybody (not least myself) insane with blogs, posts, tweets, messages, emails, phone calls, media releases, interviews and more about the Rally.
Well guess what. It’s Time… for Marriage Equality Rallying!
18th of May, 1PM, at Queens Park, will be Equal Love Brisbane’s Rally for Marriage Equality.
I’ve told you before why Marriage is important to me.
We’ve seen bipartisan Senate Inquiry recommendations to legislate for Marriage Equality
We’ve seen public opinion jump to an all-time-high approval rating for Marriage Equality, with even a majority of Christians in favour.
What we haven’t seen is a public push from the leaders of the political parties for Marriage Equality, with Abbott refusing to even grant a conscience vote on the issue, despite 74% of coalition supporters saying that he should, and with Gillard granting a conscience vote and then voting against the bill.
It’s time that the Federal Government took notice of the public and recognised that this nation is ready for Marriage Equality, and the nation is saying so loudly.
It’s time. It’s past time. This should be done already, and we shouldn’t need to talk about it any more…

In this election year, lets remind Abbott and Gillard that the GLBTIQ Community do this thing called voting, and at 10% of the population, we’re a demographic with some political punch. March with us. Lend us your voice. Tell our leaders that you’re casting your vote for Marriage Equality this year!
