Hello to all my blog readers 👋🏼. I can’t believe I have made it to blog number 10, where has the time gone, 4 months since my first one. I have decided for this blog to share with you some photos that were taken to help promote marriage equality in Australia. I was disheartened to hear that it hadn’t been legalised here in Australia as Sydney is often seen as being forward thinking and holds one of the biggest Mardi Gras in the world. However, tomorrow the result from a large scale postal vote will be revealed. The “Yes Equality” campaign has been working for a long time to broaden people’s horizons and talk about equal marriage for everybody. It is a national campaign to win marriage for all Australians through a vote in Parliament.
Many photographers across Australia have chosen to offer free mini photoshoots for all LGBT people in the hope to spread love and provide positive images of love that may not always be seen. It aims to display love of those couples who are often under or misrepresented. This is part of Fox and Kins #rainbowloveau initiative. Having selected a photographer from Sydney, Bruria Hammer Photography, we were able to pick a time and location. Photographer Bru made us feel relaxed in a situation that is normally outside our comfort zone. Showing affection or even holding hands is not something we would normally do in public.
Thought provoking 🤔
Many pictures were taken in a number of different settings. Luckily for us, Rose Bay Park could offer pictures with greenery, as well as pictures by the water. It was a great experience for us, to be involved in such a great project and to be able to help in some way, no matter how small it may appear. Plus it was great to have some professional photos of us 😉
We can’t thank Bru enough and for the #rainbowloveau campaign. Hopefully more images of love being seen will help to ensure others that this can be normal and possible in today’s society. Let’s hope the result tomorrow will be a positive one. And if not, the campaign of mini photo shoots will be running until it is legalised.
Thanks for reading. See some photographs below. #loveislove #allyouneedislove #rainbowloveau
