"It's personal. I have always marched and have felt it important to document our journey, our fight for equality. I am thrilled and am proud that this has happened in my (our) life-time..."

The importance for the legalities of the recognition of equal rights for marriage is that the LGBTQIA+ communities see this as a step forward for communities and families for the equal respect, acceptance and acknowledgment of loving relationships between people. A human right to be acknowledged equally.

Australians have for more than fourteen years been taking to the streets to protest for the Equal Rights for Gay Marriage in Australia. Hunt's photographic series documents the Sydney and Melbourne LGBTQIA+ communities, as well as our straight allies, marching together for the need and acknowledgement of gay marriages as equal to straight marriages.

This exhibition will celebrate our first year of equal marriage rights for all Australians. The opening will also be the book launch of LET'S EAT CAKE and copies will be available on the night. Maylei Hunt is a local social documentary photographer based in Melbourne.

Artist Talk: Sat 2 Feb at 2pm, at the Melbourne City Library exhibition space. Bookings required >>
