On September 10, Sydney staged for a huge public rally through the city streets, flying rainbow flags (and dogs) to demand marriage equality and a 'Yes' vote.

And now, on Sunday, October 22, Melbourne will do the same. It will be one last rally to urge the country to vote affirmative before the ballot closes on November 7. So send off your vote and get marching.

Support group Equal Love is running the rally, urging Australians to campaign for a 'Yes' vote and support all LGBTI+ Australians. Starting at the State Library of Victoria at 1pm, the march will then snake up to Alexandra Gardens for a series of speakers and live performances.

With the majority of Australians (a whopping two-thirds) supporting marriage equality, the rally should be stacked. Wear rainbow. Be loud.
