South West To Show Support For Marriage Equality

UPDATED: The Rally for Love will now finish at the Indi Bar (formerly the Old Elliot Street Bar, behind the Burlington Hotel) with up to 300 able to fit for the concert. Booking details in the link below.


There's no doubt there's a ground swell of support for Marriage Equality, especially in South West youth, in the wake of the postal plebiscite going ahead.

This Saturday, a march for the cause will take place between ANZAC Park and Maker + Co from 2pm.

The Rally for Love has been organised by Bunbury city councillor Joel McGuinness is about encouraging people to enrol to vote but also to promote the LGBTQI people in the South West community.

"It's come together really quickly," said McGuinness, speaking to The Drive Home with Cliff.

"It's more about just getting a positive message out there that if you care, get out there and please vote. People who are affected by this, and I'm one of them, is about being inclusive not exclusive.

"I don't want to buy into the people that are negative or against it, I really want to say 'Hey, let's be inclusive as a community'"

Federal member for Forrest, Nola Marino MP, has publicly said that she is against Marriage Equality.

In a statement on her website last week, it reinforced her thoughts that many in the South West have deeply held beliefs about marriage, especially its role in supporting families and the community.
