Today was another Equal Love Rally in Melbourne. It was held outside the State Library of Victoria on a glorious sunny Melbourne day. Lots of people were there. Lots of ordinary, everyday, normal people. There were some great speeches. There was a lot of inspiration, love and acceptance.
In this world there is a lot of intolerance, ignorance and fear around people who don’t conform to some rigid stereotype of “normal”. Sadly these people lack the compassion, humanity and maturity to understand that their bigoted, homophobic and hateful attitudes are wrong, outdated, and plain old mean.
When will these people grow up and learn to love?
