Today it was announced that AME (Australian Marriage Equailty) and GETUp! Will jointly sponsor the live outside broadcasts of the upcoming Royal Wedding in Sydney on Friday, April 29. To raise awareness of the issue of Equal Marriage Rights for ALL Australians.
The unique and highly impacting sponsorship will include the broadcasting of their recent television advertisement, while attendees at the live sites will receive slices of wedding cake made by Sydney company Gaycakes.
Australian Marriage Equality national convenor Alex Greenwich said same-sex couples should have the same chance to marry their partners.
“On this happy day when Australians celebrate the royal wedding, many Australians share the aspiration to one day marry their own ‘prince’ or ‘princess’, including many gay and lesbian Australians,” he said.
Prime Minister Julia Gillard, who is staunchly against Equal Marriage Rights for all Australians will be attending the wedding with her de facto partner Tim Mathieson, after making several stops throughout Asia, including being the first international leader to visit Tsunami and Earthquake ravaged Japan.
