Strong crowd expected at Northbridge Piazza for same sex marriage survey result

ALMOST 600 people have said they would head to Northbridge Piazza early Wednesday morning to hear the same sex marriage survey results.

David W. Kalisch, from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), will at 10am AEST announce the results of the survey, which cost $122 million to hold and about 12 million Australians voted in.

The three hour time difference means WA would hear the results at 7am.

The Equality Campaign Facebook page boasts 591 RSVPs to the WA event.

The Equality Campaign WA State co-ordinator Emma Gibbens said she would be happy to see 100 people attend, given the time difference.

“It is early, so we hope people trek out in time for the results,” she said.

“Anecdotally, many people have told us they are coming with their friends and family.”

Ms Gibbens said even if the vote came back ‘no’, attendees could still celebrate a good ‘yes’ campaign.

“A ‘no’ vote would just be a bump in the road, the ‘yes’ campaign is on the right side of history” she said.

She said representatives of WA Aids Council would be there for to provide counselling.
