FREO’S MARRIAGE EQUALITY STAND
The City of Fremantle has adopted a Marriage Equality Proclamation to support same gender marriage, which no doubt will delight the gay and lesbian community in Freo.
The proclamation supports mariage equality irrespective of sex, sexuality or gender identity.
Councillor Doug Thompson said that as someone raised as a Catholic he had not put much thought about it and had questioned if local government should get involved in it, but he now believed it was essential that the support started at local community level.
Other Councillors expressed they believe that same sex marriage in Australia is inevitable as it will snowball from local level.
