Equal Love Melbourne

Equal Love Melbourne

Equal Love is a nationwide campaign for same-sex marriage in Australia. We aim to put pressure on the government to legislate for equal marriage rights. It has been six years since the Australian government amended the Marriage Act to ban same sex marriage. Six years of state-sanctioned homophobia is too many!

With a federal election approaching, all supporters of equal rights for same sex couples need to hit the streets and take part in the many actions and demonstrations organised by Equal Love as a part of the National Year of Action to show their opposition to homophobia. We need to send a clear message to the government that discrimination in 2010 is not okay and will not be tolerated.

At our demonstrations we often have local celebrities, entertainers and community groups leading the marches and Equal Love is famous for organising the annual mid-winter vows held at the registry office in the month of the ban on same sex marriage (August). In 2009 we set a new world record – for the largest mass illegal wedding ever. We encourage others to get on board and play whatever role they can in making the demonstrations bigger and better. People are welcome to bring along contingents of supporting friends, family, workmate to the demonstrations as well as your placards, banners and anything else that will help to show your support for equal rights.

Every year our protests have received national media coverage, taking our cause to the living rooms of millions of Australians. By putting lesbian and gay rights issues in the public spotlight, we challenge homophobia and promote greater acceptance of our community. The annual Mid winter vows are held as a part of a National day of action and protest. Already public opinion is on our side, and together we can turn a small majority of supporters into an overwhelming majority, forcing our politicians to listen and act.
