LOCAL craft beer collective Rainbow Beer have launched a Pozible campaign to help fight for marriage equality in Australia.
With a funding target of $100,000, money raised from the campaign will be used to increase production of the beer so that the company can generate enough revenue to donate to support same-sex and gender marriage in the country.
Co-founder of Rainbow Beer Nick Goding said it was time for groups and organisations across the country to stand up and help make the change Australians want to see.
“LGBTI Australians deserve the right to marry, just as everyone does – and it’s time we speak up for our community and change how we do things,” he said.
“We’re campaigning for marriage equality the best way we know how – by putting our pro-love beer in bars and homes across Australia.”
Since 2011, Rainbow Beer has been exclusively on tap at The End, a bar in West End, Brisbane.
The founders believe that love is love and that every single person should be able to marry whoever they want to.
On their Pozible campaign page Rainbow Beer state that the time to act was ages ago, and that being 2017, it’s time to bring Australia into the 21st century.
“A vote for marriage equality is a vote for everyone – our sisters, brothers, lovers, children, family, and beyond,” it reads.
“50 per cent of profits from the Rainbow Beer we sell will go directly towards supporting initiatives run by Australian Marriage Equality.”
