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.
