So proud: Meet the rain­bow war­riors who helped win a his­toric vote

These 11 in­spi­ra­tional peo­ple share their sex­u­al­ity proudly – and we think that’s def­i­nitely some­thing that de­serves cel­e­brat­ing!

WE’VE HAD a lot of wins as a na­tion in the past 12 months (hint: YES, we have!). Aus­tralia voted ‘Yes’ to same­sex mar­riage and, not long af­ter, a bill was passed in Par­lia­ment to le­galise same­sex mar­riage. It’s a huge land­mark for the LGBTQI com­mu­nity and their al­lies. And it’s all thanks to those who have tire­lessly cam­paigned for equal­ity – our rain­bow war­riors. It’s no easy task se­lect­ing just 11 of them, but each of the fol­low­ing peo­ple has been a role model by be­ing their true selves on a pub­lic stage and fight­ing for the rights of the com­mu­nity. De­spite the in­cred­i­ble win of le­gal­is­ing same­sex mar­riage, there’s still some way to go un­til mem­bers of the LGBTQI com­mu­nity are com­pletely treated as equals. But to­gether we can make a dif­fer­ence – our voices mat­ter. Join us in cel­e­brat­ing the peo­ple who have in­spired us with their mis­sion to en­sure all LGBTQI peo­ple are sup­ported.
