Fifty residents of Hobart’s northern suburbs gathered for a colourful rally last week outside the office of the Upper House member for Elwick, Adriana Taylor, who voted against the recent state same-sex marriage bill, despite saying she opposes discrimination.

“The rally sent a message to Adriana Taylor that there is strong support for marriage equality in the northern suburbs and that by opposing it she does not speak for us,” rally organiser Robbie Moore said,

Glenorchy City Alderman Sharon Carnes addressed the crowd saying the Northern Suburbs community believes in equality for everyone and expects their elected representatives to share these values.

“As a resident of Adriana Taylor’s electorate I don’t believe she consulted the community sufficiently.” on this important issue and I expect her to consult more before the next time it is voted on.”
