WE SAY YES
Marriage Equality | Photo Moment
MCMPR partnered with AWPR to bring together over 300 members of the Australian fashion, media and creative industries for a photo opportunity in support of the Australian same-sex marriage VOTE YES campaign.
Notable fashion identities that took part included Jesinta Franklin, Marc Freeman and Camilla Freeman Topper, Marta Dusseldrop, Melissa Hoyer, Neale Whitaker, Julie Stevanja, Rachel Gilbert, Rebecca Vallance and Sydney MP Alex Greenwich.
Captured by renowned Australian fashion photographer Hugh Stewart, the image went viral and generated hundreds of posts globally. It was picked up by Australian-expats Miranda Kerr, Laura Brown and Yasmin Sewell, and media including the Sydney Morning Herald, Sunday Telegraph, Vogue, Elle Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, Stellar and Wish magazine.
Two months later, the Australian public voted in support of same-sex marriage, with legislation recognising marriage equality passed into law on 8 December 2017.
