United We Dance For Marriage Equality!
On Saturday I had the privilege in taking part in United We Dance for Marriage Equality, to promote the upcoming rally for marriage equality that was taking place the following day. A small group of us had been rehearsing choreography to Rihanna’s “We Found Love” for a few weeks and it was great to see some extra faces turn up on the day making the total number of participants a nice even 16. We performed two performances, the first at Brisbane Square and then the second at King George Square.
Both performances were a success attracting spontaneous audiences at both locations. This particular United We Dance flash mob was used to help promote the upcoming rally for marriage . Frances and I wanted it to carry a clear message of love and equality. Too often lies and negativity are spoken over us and sometimes we can’t help but believe them as truth, however as Rihanna’s song goes “We Found Love in a hopeless place”, we brought those very words to life by staging our very own “same-sex wedding” in midst of adversity through the forms of performance and dance.
Special thanks has to go out to Brendan Burke for the photography.
And an extra special thanks to my film crew Brent Dunner and Zac Loy for filming. You guys are amazing!!!
