The march for equality

Legalise Love had its "march for equality" in Wellington today. I wasn't able to make it down to support my friends, but it looks like the turnout was good, with Three News reporting hundreds of marchers. They also report that

“The most common response from people is, ‘What? Isn’t it already legal?’ Sure, people don’t know what the law is, but it speaks to the fact that people really think that the law should be the other way and they are surprised by the fact that it’s not.”
Which shows that we've already won the battle for public acceptance. The challenge is getting the politicians to admit that.
