Perth Yes Festival draws more than 1000 people

WITH 20 days left to return marriage equality surveys, more than 1000 people attended the Yes Festival on Saturday in support of same sex marriage.

Members of the LGBTQI community and allies converged at Russell Square, which hosted several stalls and performances by Abbe May and the Gay and Lesbian Singers of WA.

The rally, attended by police, was circled by a vehicle towing a large “vote no” sign but no incidents occurred.

Surveys must be returned by October 27 with results released on the Australian Bureau of Statistics website on November 15.

Pride Parade will be held on November 25.
