Supporters of the marriage equality ‘Yes’ vote will be gathering in Lismore on November 15, hopefully to celebrate a resounding win.
The Northern Rivers LGBTIQ Alliance is organising an event that will take place in the quadrangle area of the new Lismore Regional Gallery.
They will use a drone to take a photo of a love heart, formed by those present, to etch the moment into the history of the northern rivers.
‘We feel that is important to offer our community the support that will be needed at this historical moment and hopefully the opportunity for celebration as well,’ organisers said in a statement.
The event will include speakers Jenny Dowell and Asren Pugh (Australians for Marriage Equality), music performance by Paige Phoenix and friends and a performance piece by Dee Dee Chenille.
Food to be provided by the Gallery cafe as well as Haps Health Bar.
Everyone attending is being urged to dress in one colour so they can be arranged into a ‘glorious love heart’ for the photo shoot, which will take place at midday.
The event will begin at 11am and finish at 2pm.
