YES! WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY SPECIAL

The first Fremantle gay or lesbian couple who gets married, once marriage equality has been legislated in parliament, I’ll do your wedding photography for free!

My mate Saff Ali has offered to be the second shooter, so you’ll get two professional photographers capturing that very special day for free.

Saff is the one with the model looks, so at least you’ll have one good-looking shooter at your wedding.

It’s an unconditional offer, so no need to read the fine print.

When it happens email me, so we can have a chat: roel.loopers@iinet.net.au

FREO VOTES YES FOR MARRIAGE EQUALITY!

Australia voted YES! for marriage equality, and in my opinion it is well overdue and Federal Government should implement it as soon as possible.

The City of Fremantle posted following media release which I want to share with Freo’s View readers and also the fun photo they took of Councillors Jenny Archibald, Bryn Jones, Jeff McDonald, Mayor Brad Pettitt, Hannah Fitzhardinge, Ingrid Waltham and Rachel Pemberton and her dog:

The City of Fremantle has welcomed the resounding support for marriage equality in the Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics announced the results of the survey earlier today, with 61.6 per cent of the 12.7 million respondents voting in favour of marriage equality.

In Fremantle, 70.1 per cent of people voted yes.

Fremantle mayor Brad Pettitt said the result was a win for equality in Australia.

“Fremantle is a progressive, culturally-diverse and inclusive society and it’s the duty of the council to represent and uphold the values of the community,” Mayor Pettitt said.

“That’s why we campaigned in favour of marriage equality and why we welcome today’s result.”

In April this year the Fremantle City Council unanimously adopted a proclamation in support of marriage equality and resolved to write to all Federal MPs and political parties urging them to allow a conscience vote on the issue.

Councillor Jeff McDonald, who moved the council’s marriage equality proclamation, said the federal Parliament must now move quickly to amend the Marriage Act.

“Whilst the divisive and damaging plebiscite may be over, the issue of marriage equality is not yet resolved,” Cr McDonald said.

“The federal government needs to act fairly, with consideration and compassion, and legislate civil marriage for same sex couples in a prompt manner.”

FREO MARRIAGE EQUALITY RALLY TODAY!

Posted in city of fremantle, community, family, Uncategorized by freoview on August 25, 2017

 

Marriage equality Aug 25

 

The Fremantle MARRIAGE EQUALITY Rally is on at 5 pm today under the Rainbow container artwork, so come along if you want to support love.

It is a shame that what should be a minor issue has blown out of proportion. What’s the big deal of allowing same sex people to also express their commitment to each other?

It really does not affect anyone but them, as thousands of gays and lesbians already live together, bringing up children and making a contribution to our communities.

Love is a beautiful and positive thing and we should all support that.

Many churches around Australia have been expressing support for it, and those who don’t support it will not be forced to hold same sex marriage ceremonies.

The event is just opposite Cantonment Hill, so parking could be an issue. Best to come by bike or on foot, or park at the East Street jetty or near the Leftbank pub.

It should be a good feel, positive event about love, so come along!

YES! RAINBOW FLAG AT FREO TOWNHALL

Posted in city of fremantle, family, Uncategorized by freoview on August 23, 2017

 

rainbow flag

 

There is a big pro marriage equality rally under the Fremantle Rainbow sculpture on Friday at 5 pm, and Fremantle Council is flying the rainbow flag high as well.

Love is not sexist or gender bias. People who love each other should be able to marry, and it does not matter if they are same sex couples.

Voting YES matters a lot to very many people who want to commit themselves to their partner.

FREO’S MARRIAGE EQUALITY STAND

Posted in city of fremantle, family, local government, Uncategorized by freoview on April 13, 2017

 

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.

WEDDING EXPO AT MOORE&MOORE

Posted in fremantle, wedding by freoview on April 4, 2017

The Moore&Moore cafe in Fremantle’s Henry Street is organising a WEDDING EXPO this Friday April 7 from 5.30 to 8.30. Entry is free.

I have never been married but was wondering if I like eating profiteroles so much to make up for having missed out on the croquembouche at the wedding I never had. ; >(

Anyway all you young and old lovers who want more than love as a commitment, head out to the Freo West End on Friday and get some valuable information for the most special day of your life.
