There was a huge turnout in Melbourne for the final rally before Victoria’s state election, and a list of speakers to match – see report on Equal Love website . Saturday was also International Trans Remembrance Day, and Transgender Victoria spokesperson Sally Goldner called for a minute’s silence to mark victims of bigotry. After the speeches at the State Library – and the now-traditional competition for the best placard – there was a loud and colourful march through the CBD to the old Treasury Building, where Equal Love convenor Ali Hogg gave a final address, looking ahead to more actions in 2011.
Photos from the rally and march – these and more are included in a slideshow on YouTube, along with some brief video clips from the latter part of the march (there is more video on the Equal Love website referred to above). Most need no caption…
