   Marching in Belfast on the 6th of August www.belfastpride.com/  Trains and room sorted for that. 

   There's a free weekend before Glasgow www.pride.scot/  for which I might be able to arrange cheaper travel and accommodation, but marching on the 20th whatever. 

   Weekend after there's foylepridefestival.com/  on the 27th; followed on the 3rd of September by www.prideinnewry.com/   for which it looks as though I shall have to stay in Belfast and bus or train it on the day. 

   Marching for Marriage Equality in Northern Ireland; Trans Rights and, of course, Orlando. If I can find the means I will also try to register my support for BlackLivesMatter as well. 

   Busy, busy, busy... 

   But hopefully it will be worth it. 


     Goddess watch over us all,

  Last night saw the Republic of Ireland's Presidential Commission officially sign the Marriage Bill 2015 into law. Marriage Equality is now a reality in all parts of the UK and Ireland apart from here in Northern Ireland. There is no time like now to make things change. As Northern Ireland heads towards it's fifth vote on the issue of civil marriage equality this coming Monday, we urge everyone to put some last minute pressure on their MLA's to clarify their stance on the issue. Over 4,000 people have already got involved and voiced their concerns with NI's political representatives. 

Who wants to stay on "the wrong side of history" .... ?

Four days ago, PM Tony Abbott told Liberal party members that they’re banned from voting ‘Yes’ on marriage equality. It was a dirty trick that could block marriage equality for years.

But now brave politicians are taking a stand. A couple of days ago, MP Tim Watts gave a passionate speech that's gone viral. Four bold politicians from Abbott’s own party have promised to defy the government and vote YES anyway.

It’s the start of a rebellion that could make marriage possible for thousands in weeks rather than years. Here's what we need: a huge global outcry for equality will show these politicians that we’ve got their back. Better yet, it could inspire dozens more to vote for equality.

Click the link and your name will be added AUTOMATICALLY to our global petition, calling on Aussie politicians to defy the government and vote YES to love. We’ll deliver it directly to Parliament in just 3 days: go.allout.org/en/a/oz-marriage-equality

A cross-party bill on marriage equality will be introduced to the Aussie Parliament next week. The government previously promised that a bill with broad support would be taken seriously. But they’ve broken their word by banning party politicians a free vote on marriage equality.

But 70% of Aussies want marriage equality. And countries from Canada to Ireland to Uruguay have already made it legal for gay and lesbian couples to marry. All Out members speaking up from around the world will remind Liberal politicians that Australia is lagging behind.

Thanks for going All Out,

Andre, Rose, Oscar and the rest of the All Out team.

P.S. At a secret meeting this week, Australia’s Liberal party banned its members from voting YES on marriage equality. Thanks to this sneaky move, the bill could die and marriage equality could be shelved for at least a year!
