Home-sharing company Airbnb has thrown their support behind the push for marriage equality in Australia.
The company’s new “Until We All Belong” campaign calls on Australians to show their support for the reform by wearing an “acceptance ring” until marriage equality is made legal.
The matte black metal ring (pictured) has been designed by jeweller Marc Newson and features a gap in the band – symbolising the gap in marriage equality – and the words ‘Until We All Belong’ on the inside.
Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky said he hopes the ring will spark conversations about acceptance and inclusivity.
“Openness and belonging are at the heart of Airbnb – it’s at the core of what we do every day,” he said.
“We are committed to helping people belong no matter where they are in the world and strongly believe that everyone should have the right to marry the person they love.
“This is an opportunity for people to show their support for marriage equality – not just those within the LGBTQI+ community, but for anyone to make their support for a brother, sister, parent, friend or loved one known.”
Airbnb has partnered with The Equality Campaign as well a number of big brands, including Qantas, ANZ, Google, and eBay for the campaign. They’ve made the rings available for only the cost of postage through the campaign’s website.
The company has also released a series of videos featuring a group of Australians wearing the rings and describing the importance of marriage equality to them:
