As part of the Equal Love campaign and rallies -- which is calling on the federal government to lift the ban on same-sex marriage, making marriage legalised for all consenting adults -- there are live performances organised. The two thousand gay rights supporters there at the rally, standing on the lawn of the Melbourne State Library, were treated to some entertainment. One of the leading drag queens of Melbourne, who has built up a reputation as a thrilling and exciting entertainment of the city's gay scene, stood in front of the crowd, before then singing and dancing. This was another example in how Equal Love has been able to achieve celebrity endorsements, not being a fringe issue but something that has captured the imaginations of the Australian mainstream: this fact is also reflected in the poll numbers taken on the support for equal marriage rights, which is always a healthy majority.
