Australian Marriage Equality along with a range of Australian musicians will head to the Enmore Theatre in Sydney for a one-off concert in support of marriage equality on Tuesday, September 12.
The ‘Unity: the Equality Campaign concert’ will feature sets from the likes of Sarah Blasko, The Jezabels, Killing Heidi, Frenzal Rhomb, Holly Throsby, Jack Colwell and Andy Bull.
“I am embarrassed that marriage equality is still an unresolved issue in Australia – a country that loves to tout the ‘fair go for all’.” Killing Heidi frontwoman Ella Hooper explained. “That slogan rings hollow when ‘all’ are clearly not treated equally or given access to the same rights, procedures, and protections of the law.”
Sydney based gay artist Jack Colwell spoke of the event:
“As a gay man, it means a huge amount to me that all these musicians, both queer and non-queer, have come together to show their support for the LGBT+ community. Queer people in Australia continue to face discrimination every day, and it’s high time that the majority stood up for what is right.”
All musicians are performing for free and 100% of proceeds from tickets will go directly to Australian Marriage Equality (AME), the registered charity that co-ordinates the national Equality Campaign.
