Organisers of a national campaign about same-sex law reform are looking for people from the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex communities to be featured in a video clip with Natalie Bassingthwaighte to promote the campaign.

Called Wear It With Pride, the new campaign aims to educate people about recent changes to 85 pieces of federal legislation which previously discriminated against same-sex couples. You can find out more about the campaign at www.wearitwithpride.com.au

Natalie Bassingthwaighte has signed up as a campaign ambassador and is allowing organisers to use her next single to help promote the campaign.

Who are we looking for?

We’re looking for people of all shapes and sizes from all walks of lives to celebrate the broad diversity of the LGBTI community:
* Couples, families and singles
* ANYONE & EVERYONE – Bear, butch, fem, queer, transgender, leather, straight-acting, twink, radical, hippy, lawyer, teacher, doctor, mechanic – we want you all.
* All sexes, all genders and all ages (under 18 with parents written permission)
* Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
* People from culturally & linguistically diverse backgrounds (Asian, Indian, Middle Eastern, Caucausian etc)

Whats involved?

The video recording will be on Saturday 12 December 2009 and will take a maximum of 2 hours.

The shooting location is in Sydney’s inner west. Best transport would be by car but there are two train stations each around 10mins walk away.
