Australia: Anti-Gay Groups Clash with Marriage Equality Rally In Sydney

Written by scott on September 1st, 2013

Sydney, AustraliaA group of anti-gay Christians try to interrupt the marriage equality rally in Sydney earlier today.

Gay Star News reports:

Pro-gay activists from Community Action Against Homophobia gathered for a demonstration in support of marriage equality six days before Australia’s federal elections. The day began with speeches outside Sydney town hall, followed by a march through the streets. The rally was quickly interrupted by anti-marriage equality campaigners, who countered the protest with anti-gay rhetoric. A man with a loudspeaker was joined by Christian activists waiving anti-gay banners warning homosexuals about ‘judgement day’.

The marriage equality group chanted “hey hey ho ho homophobia has to go” at the intruders, and police eventually moved into separate the two groups.
