Yes to Marriage Equality

Our little Albany Gay and Lesbian and Everyone In Between group has been very involved in helping promote the 'Yes' vote for marriage equality.

Many of our members worked consistently over the months of the campaign, first of all helping with the ring around to encourage voters to post off their responses; then with attending the Marriage Rally at Middleton Beach; and then following up with regular Facebook messages, emails and encouragement to invididual members within the community.
