The gay marriage plebiscite, otherwise known as the Australian Government's Worst Ever Decision, has been a horrible storm of vileness for most. But the silver lining of this dark cloud is the outpouring of love and support for the LGBTQI community, and it's still going strong.

The Yaasss! Marathon is a movie marathon showing an eclectic range of queer films at various cinemas across the city on November 5. You can catch the program at Lido Cinemas in Hawthorn or Cameo Cinemas in Belgrave.

Running for a full day, from 10am to 11pm, the program for the marathon includes:

The Queen of Ireland (2015)
Carol (2015)
Weekend  (2012)
Moonlight (2016)
The Birdcage (1996)
Tangerine (2015)

Single film tickets are $15 or $45 for the full marathon. And all profits will be donated to Minus18, Australia's biggest network for LGBTQI youths. So, if exactly nothing good comes out of this plebiscite, at least we can curl up alongside a group of warriors and watch some damn fine cinema.
