While Australia’s largest rally for LGBTI rights marched in Sydney on
December 3rd last year the ALP changed their party position to no
longer support discrimination in the marriage act but now it is time
to put their money where their mouth is.

Equal Love vow to keep up the pressure until the marriage act is changed in law.


Convener of Equal Love Victoria, Ali Hogg argues that “the platform
change is nothing but window dressing if it doesn't lead to
discrimination being removed from law.”


LGBTI people will keep mobilising until marriage equality is a
reality. Equal Love Victoria will be holding picket actions outside of
MP offices in 2012 to pressure them to vote in favor of equality as
well as taking part in a National day of Action to coincide with
International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia on Saturday May
12.


Hogg believes if we mobilise we can win “We saw over 10,000 people
marching outside the ALP conference and it was a real sign that
Australians are fed up and want equal rights granted in law!”


“If we keep up the mobilisations of thousands across Australia in 2012
to demand that all politicians vote for equality we have a real
potential to win”


From now on, we need to be demanding ALL MPs vote for equal rights. We
also demand that equal rights be adopted as binding policy by both
major parties.
