Former Sydney Mardi Gras director, Steph Sands has posted to facebook photographs showing a series of ‘No’ graffiti tags that were spray painted over the weekend in the suburb of Stanmore.
“Woke up to ‘respectful’ self-expression from No voters In Stanmore this morning,” Sands wrote in the post. “Devastated that the beautiful mural I drive past most weeks has been ruined. Feel free to share. And if anyone knows the best way to save the mural please comment.”
This is not the first public vandalism from ‘No’ voters, last week a Brisbane woman, Jessica Lette-Garvey, shared images of swastikas spray-painted on the rainbow flags and fence posts outside her house.
“I would never imagine that by simply showing support for equality would be met with such vitriol.”
