Students are again gearing up for Equal Love rallies across the country this month, with Melburnians set to show their support for same-sex marriage on November 28 at the State Library.
The rallies will come two days after the Senate Committee hands down its review of the Marriage Equality Amendment Bill — introduced by Greens senator Sarah Hanson-Young in June — after receiving thousands of public submissions.
Mobilisation on university campuses has already begun. National Union of Students queer officer Heidi Claus said the the push coming from the younger generation was crucial.
“This year’s Galaxy poll revealed that 74 percent of younger people support equal relationship rights for LGBTI couples,” Claus said.
The union movement is also said to be boosting its support for the campaign as activists head into a Year of Action for marriage equality in 2010.
