As you may or may not know, individuals from Mt Isa have been working to start Mt Isa's very first Marriage Equality Rally. While they have recieved support form the online GLBTI community, they have been met with blantant discrimination and disrespectful behaviour from the local council including Bob Katter's son and the Mayor of Mt Isa who refused to let them make a small 3 minute speech outlining why a Marriage Equality Rally would be benefit for the GLBTI community in Mt Isa.
I'm starting a facebook campaign and a change.org petition to gather support so Mt Isa can have it's first Marrriage Equality Rally. Mt Isa is a rural town and the GLBTI community is quite isolated, having a rally can help isolated community members to know that they are not alone and even if their is only one person at the rally, one person out and proud person can make a difference to the lives of many.
