"Because I Look Great in Tulle"

This Monday 17th May 2010 is IDAHO which stands for International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (kind of, but who's counting?) Several hundred people turned out at the State Library in Melbourne today to to mark the occasion and to support Equal Love, a year long campaign of action for same sex marriage in Australia. Here's a few pictures, including one of (Sir) Ian McKellen who got the crowd nicely hyped up before all the politicians and activists took to the stage.

The title of this post is taken from my favourite homemade banners on the day. This was another lo-fi gem. One I didn't get a picture of was the gently Church-baiting 'Jesus Had Two Daddies...'

The Sir Ian love-in...
