I want to take this opportunity on Facebook to quickly mention about the upcoming “Marriage Equality” plebliscite that will soon be soon held by Postal Vote around Australia.

Over the past 6 years I’ve had the pleasure and privilege of playing around the country at some LGBQTI venues. I’ve had the opportunity to play at Midsumma in Melbourne and be involved with their yearly festival, I’ve performed at Mardi Gras and heaps of nightclubs around the country. Is there anything different about these places? No.
I’ve had the absolute best time partying with thousands of members from the LGBQTI community and I never get sick of being able to get up and perform at these remarkable establishments. The most overwhelming joy comes from these places where individuals can be who they want to be. By saying ‘Yes’ to the Marriage Equality Act, those who are gay, or lesbian, bisexual – it doesn’t matter. It shows the Australia accepts them for who they are and allows them to be respected to love who they want to love.
To the young people who feel that they are different and not accepted for being who they are – you’re wrong. Your individuality is what makes places like Australia great.
Life is short enough, with the constant threat of terrorism, we fear for what is happening in the world, the possibility of war and temptation of hate – let’s let love win. Love is Love.
