Me and the good folk at Blended Productions in Melbourne decided we needed to make something to support our LGBTIQ friends and family, after the last gruelling couple of months in which the Australian public has been asked to vote in a national survey on whether they should be allowed to marry their partner.

As most people knew it would, the national conversation has turned into a toxic battleground for judging queer relationships and preferences. It’s been great to see people of faith voice their support for equal marriage, as with many other groups, unions, public figures and professions. But there’s been a bunch of hate, ignorance, and inappropriate judgments legitimised too. The “It’s OK to Say No” campaign tagline has asked us to fear for the safety of our children, the loss of parental control over school curriculum and a whole raft of issues that aren’t about equal marriage.

So here’s our first video:

Expect to see more! We did it for the loveislove. Please like and share widely on Youtube, Facebook and Twitter!

About Luke

Luke Stickels writes fiction, theory, and essays in such a piecemeal fashion as to be moving nigh imperceptibly. But he is no author-ninja. He is dysatisfunctional. Luke has written for Meanjin, The Drum Online, New Matilda, Australian Education Union member magazines, Green Magazine, and various now-defunct magazines: IsNot! probably being the most fun. He has campaigned around the world for progressive change, trained leaders and organisers, and led thousands of people to better articulate their values and participate in social change. He’s won competitive arts grants, developed business documents and consulted with organisations to transform their culture and work processes. He’s written on violence, sound and cinema in several refereed academic journals, taught almost every subject at university, and marked over a million words. He was once carried out of Parliament by 4 police, and once quoted in a tumblr tag for “enlightened.” As if ALL THAT wasn’t due to being completely dysatisfunctional.
