A rally for marriage equality will be held this weekend in the Brisbane CBD, as campaigners urge supporters to keep up the momentum until the reform is passed.

Supporters will gather in Queens Park, on the corner of George and Elizabeth Street in the Brisbane CBD, from 1pm this Saturday, October 21.

“Millions have already voted, but millions more still have to post their ballot,” organisers from Equal Love Brisbane said.

“The legislation still has to pass the parliament, and we know we can’t sit back and put our faith in the politicians.

“We have to keep up the strength and momentum of the ‘yes’ side.”

The Brisbane event is one of several national rallies happening across the country this weekend.

Marriage equality supporters will rally in Sydney on Saturday, and in Melbourne, Adelaide and Canberra on Sunday.

On September 10, the largest ever Queensland marriage equality rally was held as some 10,000 people packed into Queens Park ahead of a loud and proud march through the Brisbane CBD.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics has strongly encouraged eligible voters to return their survey forms by October 27 ahead of the final deadline of November 7, with the result to be announced on November 15.

More information about this weekend’s Brisbane rally is available on the event’s Facebook page
