The Biggest Rally for LGBTI Rights in Australian History

Tens of thousands of people in cities around Australia hit the pavement to support marriage equality.

More than 30,000 people took to the streets of Sydney to march for marriage equality in what became Australia’s largest LGBTI rally in history on September 10.

Thousands of people also hit the streets in Brisbane and Hobart to convince their fellow Aussies to vote yes for same-sex marriage.

Today marks the first day Australians will receive a ballot in their letterboxes to vote on marriage equality. The Australian government is holding a non-binding postal survey on the issue.

If the majority of Australians vote in favour the parliament will then vote on the issue after the postal survey results are revealed on November 15.

Here are some of the best photos from the rally over the weekend.
