AN art and music festival in Sydney this Sunday will raise money for marriage equality.
The event will include performances by a lineup of local musicians including The Nu Now, an art exhibition, and community service stands.
“The event came about after a conversation around how I’d never considered marriage to another guy, because I’d accepted that marriage was not an option,” he said.
“When I realised I’d just effectively laid down and accepted this, I called a few friends and said I wanted to do an event.”
The festival will be held at the Leela Centre in Darlinghurst from noon this Sunday August 20, with the $10 entry fee being donated to Australian Marriage Equality.
“We have a great musical lineup and everyone has volunteered their free time,” said Tattersall.
“I believe in choice—I would not dictate to another how to live life, and I certainly don’t want to be dictated to. It’s also for the future generations after me. Hopefully they will grow up seeing love and not a gender.”
Voters have until August 24 to enrol or update their details to ensure they can vote in the upcoming postal poll on marriage equality.
