The Icelandic rockers laughed at the legendary tennis player who opposes LGBT rights and speaks against same-sex marriages in Australia. But they did it with a noble goal – to raise money for LGBT. Mrs. Court compared trans kids to Nazis and said her sport was full of lesbian women. That is why Sigur Ros, who played at the Melbourne arena named after Court decided top make a joke of her. “Having being made aware of recent comments by Margaret Court, the band has commissioned a special tee-shirt celebrating positivity and inclusion, with proceeds going towards Australian Marriage Equality. The band approached London-based illustrator Andrew Rae to create a special crest,” their Facebook statement reads. : “We know Margaret Court’s opinions are not shared by the majority of Australians. We want to add our voice to the call for marriage equality in Australia —right here on Margaret Court Arena itself. Australia should be a country that celebrates positivity and inclusion, as well as achievement on the sporting field.” going on they wished Australia to have the same system of LGBT rights as in their own country, which has same-sex marriages legally recognized for over 20 years and gave gay couples a right to adopt children in 2006. They also mentioned the lesbian PM ruling Iceland in 2010, and even the Church of Iceland which blessed same-sex white weddings in 2008. “Let’s make July 27th Margaret Court Arena’s most inclusive night ever and call for every Australian to have the same dignity and respect right here on centre court,” they said in conclusion.
