Mar­riage rally a suc­cess

Albany Advertiser - - NEWS -

Hun­dreds braved the el­e­ments to join the Al­bany Says YESMar­riage Equal­ity rally at Mid­dle­ton Beach last Satur­day.

The event, which was hosted by Al­bany Gay and Les­bian, high­lighted lo­cal sup­port for a “yes” vote in the same-sex mar­riage postal sur­vey.

MLC Alan­nah MacTier­nan, WA Se­na­tor Dean Smith and Mem­ber for the South West Diane Evers all spoke at the rally while event or­gan­iser Mil­lie Reid hailed it a suc­cess.

“There was a great turnout de­spite the weather — ev­ery­body had a re­ally good vibe and the spirit was won­der­ful,” she said.

“It was fan­tas­tic that peo­ple came out to sup­port this and that’s re­ally what we wanted — to have some com­mu­nity sup­port.”
