Inner West Says Yes!
Wednesday 15 November 2017
Today we celebrate a large step forward in the long, slow and ceaseless march towards universal human rights in this country.
The people of the Inner West have spoken and delivered one of the highest yes votes in the country. In doing so we have sent a message to our LGBTIQ community that as your brothers and sisters, neighbours and friends we stand with you in solidarity always.
The Inner West Council will become the first in Australia to open the doors of our town halls and community centres free of charge for same sex marriages. We hope to become the same sex marriage capital of Australia.
We will be celebrating tonight from 7pm with a reception in the Newtown Neighbourhood Centre, where we’ll honour everyone in our community who has fought for change for so long.

Mayor of the Inner West
