Marriage rally a success
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.”
