Aussies rally for marriage equality

Gays and lesbians staged large rallies in Australia’s cities May 15 demanding federal legalization of same-sex marriage.

The rallies coincided with the May 17 worldwide International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia.

British gay actor Sir Ian McKellen addressed more than 1,000 ralliers in Melbourne.

“A non-discrimination law establishing the right for gay people to be married would cost the Australian government nothing financially and would gain for you worldwide respect (and) would change lives enormously,” McKellen said.
